Illustration Of Pink Tulips.png May First Grade Update

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.

With the weather getting warmer, please send your child in with an extra water bottle that he/she can keep in the classroom to get a drink from when necessary.  Thanks!!

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

  • Review words with digraphs and blends

  • Long vowels

  • Inflectional endings –ing and –ed

  • About 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 will be beginning our study of animal life cycles and animal groups.   The kids are so excited!

Just a Reminder…

  • No School on May 28th…For Memorial Day

  • Field Day...May 29th (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!!

Sincerely, Mrs. Jubelt
