 Welcome to Mrs. Saleck-Weber's First Grade Class Page!












Our Reader's Theater plays are SO FUN to read!


March 19-23 , 2018

    We've all been working really hard on our reading skills!  One way to practice is to partner- read with one of our Reader's Theater plays.  They really help us work on sight words and our reading fluency.  They're also a FUN way to practice!     

Here is what's coming up for the fabulous 1st graders this week:        


 Language Arts:  

    We'll begin Unit 3 in "More Adventures of the Superkids" by practicing "is" and "will"  contractions. We'll also focus on long vowel tricker words like super and paper.  We'll then read the Superkids' story  "A Super Day at Happy Land".  What adventures will the Superkids have next?



       We'll continue to work on Money Math by trying some new spinner and dice games.  These games  will help us focus on coin recognition and counting different amounts of money.



         We'll work on Unit 16, "Jesus Shows Us How to Love Others".  We'll read the story of the Good Samaritan and think of ways we can help others.  We'll also make a Stations of the Cross book to help us get ready to attend Stations on Friday. 


   Science/Social Studies: 

          We'll be "Rockin With Rocks" for the next few weeks in first grade!  We'll compare different kinds of rocks and sort rocks into the three categories igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.  We'll try some rock experiments too! 











Rocks are very interesting!


Important Upcoming Dates:    

       Weds., March 20 and Thurs., March 21:  The 8th Graders will present their play, "Junie B. Jones, Jingle Bells, Batman Smells" @ 7pm.  Don't miss it!  

        March 26-April 2:  Easter Break!  No School!


   Our Reading Logs go home on Fridays.  Our goal is for each child to practice reading
5 times during the week.  The children should check off the days when they read and then tell about a favorite book they've read during the week.  The completed Log should be
returned to school on Fridays.

 Spelling Homework packs for Unit 3 went home on Thurs., March 15. Please
help your child complete at least 4 activities on the spelling practice grid and return by Fri., Mar. 23.
