First Grade News - Ms. Costello
October 16th - October 20th, 2017
We will continue literacy stations, and I will continue to pull guided reading groups this week. We are working on reading strategies (using picture clues to figure out tricky words, making a guess that makes sense when coming across tricky words). We will continue our literacy unit, and read the book From Seed to Pumpkin. We will talk about the main idea of the book, and learn how to use details from the book to explain the main idea, and talk about how pumpkins grow and change.
Spelling/Phonics: short vowel + /ck/
Please practice the spelling words all week at home. Final spelling test on Friday 10/13.
Sight Words: Words 31-40
*Please review sight words every night, especially if your child needs a lot of practice to remember them.* Test on 10/19.
