                   For the week of December 3, 2018

*First Grade Christmas Pageant - We will continue practicing for our Christmas Pageant this week.  Letters went home last week explaining some details as well as indicating your child's part. If your child has any lines, those were attached. Please continue to practice at home!

*Homework - The children have done an awesome job learning how to copy their own homework into their agendas. We will continue to do this therefore it is very important that their agenda is brought to school every day (with the exception of Mondays - I collect them on Fridays and keep them in school to assure they are there Monday mornings).

*Math - Even though we are working on the chapters about geometry, it is still very important to continue to review Doubles Facts and Friends of Ten Facts on a regular basis. Having these facts memorized will make future math concepts a lot easier! Suggestions for practicing:
-Flash Cards
-IPad Apps
-Consistent Questioning (whenever you're driving in the car or waiting for an appointment, etc.)

Our Work for the Week:

SPELLING WORDS: who, what, when, shells, ships, packs, maps, rugs, chins, necks
*There will be a spelling test on FRIDAY this week.

READING: This week we will read a fantasy called A Cupcake Party. We will use this story to discuss the story elements we already know (characters, setting, and plot) and will be introduced to problem and solution.

FUNDATIONS: This week we will continue with Unit 6. We will continue working with base words and adding the suffix "s" to make nouns plurals.
TRICK WORDS: who, what, when
WORDS OF THE DAY: shells, ships

: Adjectives

MATH: We will continue with our geometry chapters. We have moved onto 2-Dimensional shapes. We will be identifying the number of sides and vertices in shapes as well as building and decomposing shapes.

**Please note that if during the day we use pages out of our Big Math Book in class, I will send those pages home in the red take home folder so you can see how the lesson was taught during the day. It is my hope that, if needed, this will help you be able to assist your child with the homework that night. 

RELIGION: We will be talking about the first week of Advent. We will also focus a lot of our time on practicing for our Christmas Pageant! 

**As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
