Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for visiting the website and for your continued support! Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Students are expected to learn many sight words this year. Sight words are words that we see often, that we can read without having to sound out. These words will be used in spelling and writing daily and will be on our classroom wordwalls.
Here is one set of words that first graders will learn. This list is from the Sitton Spelling program, which is used by our second grade teachers.
This year's Science units include:
Matter and Forces of Motion-solids and liquids, observing and measuring objects, and location/motion of objects
Living Systems and Heredity-plants and animals, basic needs of living things, and how living things change and grow
Earth and Space Science-Earth's materials and resources and objects that move in the sky
Be on the look-out for Scholastic book order forms to come home! This a GREAT way to build your child's home library and foster a love of reading. If you'd like to order anything simpy fill out the form on the back of the order(s). You can send one payment for all book order forms. I submit these orders online so checks can be written out to Lisa Olsen. I will take care of entering the payment online. You may also order online yourself using Scholastic's parent ordering option. You will need a code to enter online orders, please check the order forms for that code.
Please check out the Scholastic website for more information on book clubs and fun activities you can do with your child!!
