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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mar. 18-22, 2019

    This week we'll be enjoying  our SPRING BREAK!  We hope everyone has a fun week off.  We're also hoping for some SPRING weather soon!  Here are some of the activities we'll be working on when we return:

 

 LANGUAGE ARTS:  

  Our word work focus will be contractions with "will", such as I'll and you"ll, "am ", such as I'm, and "is", such as he's and she's.  We'll read the story "The Wish" to help us practice these contractions.  We'll also try writing "how to stories.   

  

  MATH:  

    We'll finish up our Money Math unit by counting different amounts of money with pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters!  We'll use some new math centers to practice counting money.         

 

 RELIGION:  

    In Religion, our work will focus on Lent and doing kind things to show we love others.  Chapter 16, "Jesus shows us how to love others" fits right in with this important work.  We're really thinking about how we can change and grow closer to God during these 40 days of Lent.        

 

SCIENCE/SOCIAL STUDIES:

     We'll continue our "Rockin' with Rocks" unit by learning about the third type of rock, metamorphic rocks.  These are rocks made up of other rock chunks, using pressure and heat.  We'll try an interesting metamorphic rock experiment to see if we can make one!
