1st Grade Page



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











Jan. 11-18, 2019

   One of our new reading activities for 2019 is our Reader's Theater plays.  They are a great way to practice reading fluency and memory words and are also FUN!  We're all excited to try them out!  The first graders will also work on these skills this week:        



      We'll continue our work with long vowel sounds and practice CVCe patterns.  Word families such as -ake, -ike, -ame and -ute will be our focus and our spelling words for the week. We'll read the stories "Toc's Chicken Pox" and "Ettabetta is Seven" to practice our long vowel sounds and also do many word work activities.  



         We'll continue to practice finding tens and ones in numbers with some new math centers.  We'll use winter counters, Unifix and links cubes and number cards to work with numbers up to 99.  



          We'll finish up Ch. 12, "Families love and care for one another".  We're looking forward to being the All-School Mass planners on Jan. 23!  We hope our families and friends can join us for Mass on January 23 at 8am.    



      We'll continue our study of  the Arctic.  We'll learn about the different animals that live in the Arctic, with a focus on polar bears. We'll be using the facts we learn to work on an informational report about polar bears next week.
