Second Quarter

First Grade families,

We are wrapping up the first quarter and moving into the second quarter.  We will continue to work on diving deeper into reading comprehension, fluency and phonemic awareness. You can help at home by reading nightly, practicing sight words, and retelling stories. In math we are continuing to strengthen our strategies and deepen our skills. Keep practicing math facts at home. This will help make students more fluent and able to solve more challenging problems. We are really focusing on missing addends (8+_=10)


As fall and winter arrives please make sure to label all jackets and sweaters.  If your child gets cold easily in the classroom please ensure that his or her sweater follows the Russell uniform policy.
