Weekly Update for 11/26/12
Math: Flat and solid shapes: cube,cylinder,pyramid and sphere. Math Facts +0,+1 and Doubles- please continue to practice these at home. Here is a great website I found, http://www.adaptedmind.com/gradelist.php , you can have your child
 practice the 1st Grade Math section.
Reading: Short i words and sight  words. As you are studying the sight word lists it is helpful to keep going back over previous lists so that your child retains those words as well.
Science: Animals that hibernate, migrate or adapt. Talk with your child and see if they can tell you the various animals and how they handle the winter weather!
Language:  We have learned about nouns, adjectives and verbs. This week we are learning more about verbs(action words)
Bible: This week we are studying the story of Kind David and Jonathan's son Mephibosheth. We are also talking about how David showed kindness to Mephibosheth and how we should show kindness to each other.
Social Studies:  Workers - Everyone has a job to do! What is your job in school? What is your job do your parents do?

  • Christmas Play Costume: See me if you need help getting one for your child. 
  • Angel Tree Donation: We have had about seven families donate 5 $ for our Angel Tree child. If you can afford it, your donation would be greatly appreciated! Please send in this week.
  • Treasure Box: We are starting to run low in our treasure box, if you could pick up a few things and send them in that would be great! You may want to ask your child what kinds of things they would like to have.
Thank You!

 that everyone can relax and have a good time! 
 But if you would like something to do over the break
