First Grade News - Ms. Costello
September 17th - 21st, 2018
Curriculum Night is Wednesday, September 19th from
5 - 6:30 PM! We will have our presentation in Room 101 from 5:30 - 5:55, and again from 6 - 6:25.
We will continue practicing Daily 5 - Read to Self and partner reading. We will also be learning word work and writing stations for Daily 5. We will read the story Chester’s Way, and talk about the characters and setting of the story. If your child is absent any day this week and needs to hear the story Chester's Way (or if they want to hear it again!), here is a link to a read-aloud on YouTube.
We are currently doing a beginning of year reading assessment called TRC. We will go over what this test is and what it measures during curriculum night :)
Spelling/Phonics short /i/
Please practice the spelling words at home. They will also be copied into your child’s agenda.
Sight Words Words 11-20
*Please review sight words every night if your child needs a lot of practice to remember them. There will be a sight word test weekly or biweekly (depending on class needs).*
