Gr.1 Spelling Test Return Library Books Operation Chrismas Child- There is still time to request and fill boxes, fill out the yellow form that was sent home last week. I would like to fill a box with the kids if you would like to donate a small item or send a dollar or two to help with the cost it would be most welcome! As I reflect on my own blessings, may I suggest that in lieu of a "teacher" gift I would be honoured if your family filled a box or contribute to the class box to give the gift of Christmas to a child less fortunate. Christmas is about the children and the spirit of giving. What we’re up to: Language Arts – Continue work with rhyme, word,and syllable awareness -. The idea of a word beginning with their names, actions and through stories. Breaking words into syllables by counting “claps” blending syllables to determine words. Zoo Phonics! – 26 animals at the zoo will help us learn to read and write. Students have begun to build a “word wall” of High Frequency words as a reference for reading and writing. I am see at can come I am hoping to post the wall soon! Math- Numbers from 1-5; Students go beyond counting and explore numbers as they relate to quantities, and each other. Key skills are recognizing more/fewer, counting on and back from a given number, Part Part Whole- various combinations to make a certain amount.
