It is hard to believe that it is already May!  This year has gone by very quickly; however we are still very hard at work here in first grade.


We continue to read and write everyday.  Some of the things we will be learning about this month during our literacy block are:


  • Review R-controlled vowels: ar, ir, ur, er

  • Words with: ou, ow, oy, oi

  • Words with sh and th

  • Review long vowels

  • Inflectional endings –ing and –ed

  • More with adjectives

  • Antonyms

  • Synonyms

  • Contractions

  • Inflectional endings –er and –est to compare

  • Subjects and Predicates of sentences

  • Pronouns

  • Small Moment writing


The children remain very busy learning and developing new skills.  

In math, we are working in  unit 8 which is all about geometry.  The students will continue to learn about attributes of shapes, compose and decompose shapes and divide shapes into equal shares (halves and fourths).  


In science we are beginning our study of animal life cycles and animal groups….just in time to visit the zoo!! The kids are so excited!


Just a Reminder…

  • Field Trip to Turtle Back Zoo is Tuesday, May 9th

  • No School on May 29th…For Memorial Day

  • Field Day...May 30th (more info will be coming home)

We can’t believe that the year is almost over.  The children have all come so far and we are so proud of each and every one of them.  They have all grown in so many ways.  Thank you so much for all of your support throughout the year.  We are so grateful to have had such a wonderful group of students and parents to work with this year.  Thank you for all you have done.  We appreciate all of your efforts.  If you have any questions during the last two months of school, please don’t hesitate to ask!


Happy Mother’s Day!!
