1st Grade Page


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












April 24-28, 2017

     We're very excited to begin our unit on "Animals of the Rain Forest".  We did a museum walk to introduce the unit and made a large floor map to learn about the layers in a rain forest.  We're also working on an Earth Day challenge to remind us that we can ALL help to keep our earth beautiful.  Some of our other first grade work will include:  


Language Arts: 

   We'll work on Unit 6 in "More Adventures of the Superkids".  Our phonics focus will be -oi and -oy words and we'll work on adverbs with -ly and -ful endings.  We'll read the stories "The Lost Mitt " and "For the Birds" to practice these skills.



   We'll wrap up our Geometry unit by trying a new shape activity called "shape collector".  In our new math unit, we'll return to our addition and subtraction strategies to work on our basic fact fluency. 



   We'll continue our work on Unit 20 and talk about how Jesus brings us the gift of peace.  We'll also continue to discuss ways we can help God's beautiful world and make every day Earth Day!


Science/Social Studies: 

   We'll continue to work on our "Animals of the Rain Forest unit by making a rain forest layers project.  We'll also learn facts about animals that live in each layer.   



      Important Upcoming Dates:

         Thurs., 4/27:  1st grade will attend Chapel Mass At 8am
