Character Education Focus

This past week, we discussed “Speak

with Good Purpose”.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Next Week in First Grade

Literacy Block: Our story for

this week is called “The Night

Sky.” This story is a nonfiction account

of the moon, stars, constellations,

planets and comets. The words for the

week are
some, many, night, shine,stars, planets, moon, and light. For

phonics, we will be focusing on the long

/e/ sound and the many ways it can be

spelled. In language, we will look at the

importance of capitalizing titles and

also introduce the concept of article

adjectives. In spelling, we will be

focusing on words with double letters.

We will continue to work with main

ideas and supporting details in our

writing. In literature, we will be

reading the story, Rapunzel.

Math: As we continue our next

chapter in math, Place Value,Data, and Graphs,

we will look at the

ones and tens place value and how these

“places” create numbers. We will also

talk about “1 more and 1 less.”

Science: We will begin our Solar

System unit by talking

about the importance of our sun, the

phases of the moon, and the

constellations that are created by

stars.
