Happy Friday Boys and Girls!

The date today is May 8, 2020.

It would have been pizza day at school. Will it be pizza day at your house?

Guess what? The porcupines came back. Thankfully they didn't stay long!

This coming Sunday is the day we celebrate our Mom's.

You be sure and tell your Mom how much you love her and thank her for all the things she does for you. 

Have a great weekend! Happy Mother's Day, Moms!

Love, Mrs. Sobey

Dear Children,

Today is "thankful" Thursday. The date is May 7, 2020.

I am thankful for all of you and all your smiles. Who are you thankful for today?

Did you get to see the "Snowbirds" yesterday? It was pretty cool!

The craziest thing happened at my house in the night. Chase, Autumn and I woke to a loud noise. 

There were 2 porcupines fighting under our trampoline.

Chase came to the rescue and scared them off so we could all get back to sleep.

Have a terrific day! Love, Mrs. Sobey

Practice counting by 5’s to 100 with Grandma and Grandpa at the Beach

Follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r176jXYwct8

Then “count around the circle” by 5’s, try to get to 100. If that is too tricky you could continue to work on counting by 5’s to 50. (The expectation for the End of Grade 1 is that students would be able to skip count by 5’s to 100, starting at 0.)

Hello Parents,

You may have received an email from me tonight in regards to EPIC Books. I was investigating as to what that site was all about. It would give you access to a set of books for your child to use for independent reading. After looking at it, I prefer the Wilbooks site that I recommended previously. That being said if you like to check this site out as well, send me an email and I will re-send you the link to activate an account for your child. My email address again is, jodi.sobey@nbed.nb.ca

Have a good evening!

Good Morning Boys and Girls!

Today is Wednesday, May 6th.

It looks like it is going to be a wonderful day.

The sun is shining and this afternoon it is supposed to feel warm.

If you check the skies after 12:30 today, you might get to see the "Snowbirds" flying over our city. So exciting!

I think I am going to head to Napan to see them too! 

Have a fun day! Love, Mrs. Sobey

Writing                                                       

Begin by having your child re-read their writing piece from Monday. Their completed pieces should have at least 3 sentences. If they have reached that goal, have them add another detail to extend their writing a bit further. When these are finished, I would love to see them. That way I can also give your child some feedback to help them set some goals to work on so that their writing will continue to show growth. Writing pieces can be emailed to me at jodi.sobey@nbed.nb.ca.

Good Morning Grade 1!

Today is "trying" Tuesday, May 5th.

It looks like it is going to be another dark, rainy day. Maybe it wil a jammie day for me today.

When it's rainy I like to eat lots of snacks. I am going to try to stay away for the treats in the cupboard.

What are you going to try and do?

I was sooo happy to see some of you yesterday. It really made me smile to see your smiling faces. 

Have a terrific day, stay dry! 

Love, Mrs. Sobey

Dear Mom and Dad,

We are now entering our 5th week of “Home Learning.” I want to thank you once again for the help that you have been giving your children to complete their learning activities. The direction remains the same, please “do what they can, when they can.”  Reach out if you have any questions or concerns that you like to discuss with me. My email address is jodi.sobey@nbed.nb.ca. Have a good week!

Hello Boys and Girls,

Today is Monday, May 4th.

I hope you all had a nice weekend and enjoyed all the sunshine.

It looks like today might be cloudy with some showers.

I posted the answer to your word problem from last week. Do you like the dogs I drew?

I am going to the school soon to wait outside for you all to come pick up your things. 

It makes me sad that our time together ended early.  

I am missing you all a whole bunch!

Love, Mrs. Sobey

Then, return to https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome/grades-1-2.htmlScroll down to Day 5 once again and complete the “Whose Bones Are These?” spelling activity.

Writing

On a piece of paper, have your child either create a skeleton using glue and cotton swabs or draw a skeleton.  They can be creative doing this. When their picture is finished, have them write a short storytelling what you know about skeletons or bones. Or they could use their imagination and make up a story about a pretend skeleton. They should work on this activity for about 15 minutes. They will have more time to complete it on Wednesday.

 * Remember boys and girls, capital letters are used to begin sentences, for the word “I” and for the names of people and places. Also, don’t forget to use stop marks to show the reader where your sentence ends.

Math Activities

Warm Up

Practice skip-counting by 2’s to 20, then you are going to try counting by 2’s to 30. Can you go that far boys and girls? (Parents, the expectation for then end of Grade 1 is that students would be able to count by 2’s to 20.)

Follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvTcpfSnOMQ

Math Word Problem of the Week

This week students are going to learn about “estimation.”

Estimation means making a thoughtful guess about how many there is of something, the answer is NOT exact. When estimating we use the words “about, close to, and almost.”

Please have your child begin by watching this short video that explains what “estimation” is and provides a few examples. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dy7MH2hZx9o

The question had to be posted separately under the “Documents” tab as there is an image to go along with it. 

In addition to the activities suggested above students are encourage to read independently, participate in some physical activity and complete the task from the “Social-Emotional Learning” calendar.
