1st Grade Page


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




          Fun at our Minnesota Zoo Trip!



 May 22-26, 2017

     Last week the EXCITING NEWS in 1st grade was that our butterflies emerged from their chrysalides!!  We had a difficult time doing anything else but watch and observe as this miracle unfolded.  Our next butterfly activity will be to say goodbye and set our butterflies free!  Here are some of our other 1st grade activities coming up: 


Language Arts: 

   We'll work on Unit 9 in "More Adventures of the Superkids".  We'll phonics focus will be -oo words. We'll read a spooky mystery story called "The Case of the Mystery Monster" .



   We'll use some of our favorite math games and centers to do a math skill review.  We'll do some data collecting about our favorite math games!



   We'll work on Ch. 22, "Jesus is with us in his church".  This unit focuses on how we belong to the Church and how we can spread the good news of Jesus to others.


Science/Social Studies: 

   We'll wrap up our study of the rain forest habitat.  We'll begin work on our final Social Studies unit to compare the past and present of our 1st grade year.  We'll think of all the many things we've learned and make a "First Grade Expert" project.  We'll also make a 1st Grade Memory Book to compare how we did things at the beginning of the year to activities and skills we can do now.  Wow! We have grown and changed so much since September!
