First Grade - Mrs. Cofer and Mrs. Knopp
This week at St. Nicholas we honor our veterans with a special program on Tuesday at 1 pm. All friends, family, ESPECIALLY VETERANS, are invited to this event.
We begin Tuesday at 7:45 am with "Sneak Peek and Snack" in the cafeteria where everyone gets a peak at our class Gala Project. This year we did handprints on four seasonal table runners. We did one for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and 4th of July.
If you can't make it to the preview we hope you've made plans to attend the Gala on Saturday. It's our biggest fundraiser of the year and a fun evening out on the town with friends and other St. Nicholas parents and staff. Remember each family is required to sell $75 worth of tickets. All money from ticket sales needs to be turned in on Wednesday this week. If we raise more than $11,208 (this was last years' total from student ticket sales) we get to tape Mr. Remaley to the wall. (I know it sounds weird, but it's a fun reward!) So...please encourage your child to sell those ticket packets and get the money turned in on time. See you at the Gala!
In honor and rememberance of Veterans Courage is our virtue this week.
In Language Arts we will continue to blend, read and spell words that contain sh, ch, tch, and th. We will also introduce words containing the /or/ sound spelled or and ore, for example: or, horn, corn, core, more, store. We blend, read and spell words that contain /ar/ sound spelled ar as in car and far. We introduce, blend, read and spell words that contain /m/ spelled mb as in climb and limb. We will have a language arts assesment on Wednesday. Book reports are due as always on or before Friday.
SIGHT WORDS to practice this week (we are doing the same words for two weeks): ME, MY, NO, NOW, OLD, ONE, OR, OVER.
In Math, we wrap up Module 1 and have our end of Module assessment on Wednesday. We begin Module 2 with learning to solve word problems with three addends, two of which make ten. For example: 2 + 3 + 7. We will have Math homework Mon, Tues, and Thurs this week, no Math homework on Wednesday.
