First Grade News

October 22-26, 2012
What we’re learning Our Bible stories for this week are “The Parable of the Farmer and Seed” and “The Parable of the Weeds & Wheat”. Our basal stories are “Jog, Frog, Jog” and “Tadpole to Frog” Our Phonics focus is on the short “o” and the –ug word family. In math we are using nonstandard units to measure length, counting backwards, and adding 1. During Writing Workshop we are writing friendly letters. Science includes studies on the seasons.

Monday: Read Christ Light A “The Parable of the Farmer and Seed” Read “Jog, Frog, Jog” Tuesday: Memory Work (Romans 10:17– Faith comes from hearing the message, and

the message is heard through the word of Christ.)
Practice Math Facts Wednesday: Read Christ Light B “The Parable of the Weeds & Wheat” Read “Tadpole to Frog” Thursday: Memory Work (8th Commandment) Spelling Test (bug, hug, mug, rug, tug, plug, dug, jug Bonus: slug, shrug) Here are some options for challenging your child: • Memory Treasures– Have your child learn the reference and apply the message to an everyday experience. • Math– During grocery shopping have your child add up your total cost mentally. • Spelling/Sight words– Use the words to write complete sentences. • Reading– Read with using correct pauses at periods and commas and with excellent expression.
