1st Grade Page


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












March 12-16 , 2018

    Rocks are rockin' first grade for the next few weeks.  We'll be learning about the different rock groups and about the different characteristics of each group.  We'll try some interesting experiments to see how the different rocks are formed also!      

Here is what's coming up for the fabulous 1st graders this week:        


 Language Arts:  

    We'll practice our long vowel sounds and practice our reading with a Super Duper magazine.  We'll also keep working on adding endings to words that end in -y.  We have to remember the tricky step of "change the y to i, and then add the ending!



       We'll continue our Money Math unit by working on coin recognition and value.  We'll practice counting money with some new math centers.



         We'll continue to work together to change and grow closer to God during Lent.  Our Lent prayer, "Lord of the Loving Heart", helps us focus on that.  We'll also work on Unit 15  "Jesus Shows Us How to Love God".  


   Science/Social Studies: 

          We'll be "Rockin With Rocks" for the next few weeks in first grade!  We'll compare different kinds of rocks and sort rocks into the three categories igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.  We'll try some rock experiments too! 


        Important Upcoming Dates:    

       Fri., Mar. 16:  We can celebrate St. Patrick's Day early by wearing GREEN!

        Weds., March 20 and Thurs., March 21:  The 8th Graders will present their play, "Junie B. Jones, Jingle Bells, Batman Smells" @ 7pm.  Don't miss it!  

        March 26-April 2:  Easter Break!  No School!


   Our Reading Logs go home on Fridays.  Our goal is for each child to practice reading
5 times during the week.  The children should check off the days when they read and then tell about a favorite book they've read during the week.  The completed Log should be
returned to school on Fridays.

 Spelling Homework packs for Unit 2 went home on Thurs., March 8. Please
help your child complete at least 4 activities on the spelling practice grid and return by Thurs., Mar. 15.
