    Welcome to First Grade!

    Wear Sneakers for Gym on Monday.

    Super kids- We are studying our new Memory and Pattern words with the "sometimes" vowel 'y'.  The students are learning the grammatical rules for this magical letter and the sounds it creates at the end of different words!  The addition of endings -er and -est to these y words is being learned daily.
  • *y turns into i and add the ending!*


In Go Math, this week students are learning to measure objects with not things such ass counting cubes and paper clips.  This introduces the foundation skill of measurement before the introduction of a ruler and specific measurements.
