First Grade - Mrs. Cofer

Classroom News

We have been in First Grade for almost 100 days...but who's counting??

Time flies when you're having fun...we are about 15 days away from our 100th day in First Grade!

On Monday, we will learn more about Martin Luther King, Jr.

In Language Arts this week we look at the long i sound spelled igh, _y and ie. Also we look at long o spelled oa and ow. We also keep practicing our other long vowel sounds and reviewing sight words. Please encouarge your students to do the challenge work on the sight words and practice the words nightly. 

In Math we are subtracting 9, 8, and 7 from teen numbers. Our mathematicians are doing well...this work is a little challenging but as we repeat and continue to work I see students understanding and they are often able to complete their work independently. Thank you for the help at home with their homework, as you know you can always email me with questions. Remember that if the homework is taking longer than 10-15 minutes and your student is becoming frustrated, it's okay not to finish. 

In Science we talk about the different states of matter: Liquid, Solid and Gas. 

I think it's a normal week but keep an eye on the website calendar, we have a lot of fun stuff coming up as we celebrate Catholic School's Week at the end of the month.
