1st Grade Page



Welcome to Mrs. Saleck-Weber's First Grade Class Page!



  Nov. 12-16, 2018

        Last week we worked hard on our bat reports!  It was our first try at informational writing, and we did a great job!  This week, we'll think more about things we're thankful for, and we'll use our ideas to write a prayer in Religion.  Here are more activities the fabulous first graders will be working on: 










 The Bean Bag Toss and Halloween Bingo were part of Halloween FUN! 




   Our phonics focus will be -le words like candle and wiggle.  We're starting to work on harder and longer words!  We'll do many word work activities to help us practice and we'll also practice with the Superkids story "Fiddlesticks!".  



   We'll continue to work on subtraction facts up to 10.  We'll try the math strategies Mental Math, Use Your Fingers and Count Back during our math centers to practice subtraction, too. We'll also celebrate Day 50 of School on Thursday with math activities that center around the number 50!  



   We'll work on Chapter 6: God Speaks to Us.  This chapter will help us think about how God speaks to us in many ways, even when we least expect it.  We'll also discuss things we are thankful for and how we can have an "attitude of gratitude" to get ready for Thanksgiving. 



           We'll continue our social studies unit on "People of Long Ago and the First Thanksgiving".           We'll compare the past and the present to help us how people lived long ago.  We'll also               work on some Thanksgiving projects!  










Spooky Pictures and more Bingo!
