Weekly Update 5/10-5/14

Hello, everyone!

Monday is May 10th, and that means we have only 1 month left of first grade!  We are still learning so much every day.  I hope all you moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day , and enjoyed reading your child’s opinion writing paragraph about you. They worked really hard on them, and I loved reading their work! 

Here are this week’s announcements

*We’ve got one more set of sight words to work on. I’ll be sending those home on Wednesday. For this last set of sight words, the kids will only be required to memorize/read them. They do not need to practice spelling them! The due date to have all sight words memorized is June 7th. We will practice at school, and they will be expected to practice reading them at home. Some kids will already be able to read all of them.  Some will need nightly practice.

*But waitwe will still have spelling words!  I am going to send home a weekly review spelling list of words we’ve had throughout the year, in addition to phonics pattern words. Our next spelling test will be on Wednesday, May 19th.  I will send home the first set of review words this Wednesday.
