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

 




   Oct. 8-12, 2018

        This week we went on a walk to observe fall changes and then we painted some gorgeous fall trees!  We also talked about our Marathon fundraiser and were inspired by Captain Marathon, Marathon Man and the Marathon Twins!  Here are some of the special activities for our next week of school: 

 

   
 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

LANGUAGE ARTS:  

   We'll continue our work in Unit 1 of "Adventures of the Superkids".  We'll do word work with -ch and -tch words and we'll read the story "Help!" to practice our words.  We'll also work on writing sentences and use some October words in our writing.      

 

   MATH:  

   We'll connect our number combinations work to our new focus on addition and subtraction facts.  We'll practice with some different strategies such as +1 and learn some new math center games.  

 

   RELIGION:  

   We'll work on Unit 4, "God is Holy".  We'll find holy artifacts around school and in the church and we'll also get to design our own stained glass window.  

 

   SCIENCE:

          We'll finish up our apple investigation with our field trip to Afton Apple Orchard on Monday, Oct. 8!  Another highlight was apple tasting last Friday- yummy!!  

Our new science theme will be Animal Groups.  We'll be discussing the characteristics of each animal group and then do a more thorough investigation of a specific animal in that group. Coming up will be mammals and bats!

 

 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT UPCOMING DATES:     

   Mon., Oct. 8:  Field Trip to Afton Apple Orchard, 10:00am-1:45pm.  Remember to bring a cold lunch and drink for a picnic at the orchard!

   Sun., Oct. 28:  Happy Birthday, Andrew!  

   Weds., Oct. 31: Happy Halloween!

 

        HOMEWORK:   

 Our Reading Logs will come home every Friday.  Each child should practice reading at least 5X a week, on his/her own or with a family member, write the books read on the log and then return the Reading Log the next Friday.
