1st Grade Page


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












March 20-24, 2017

   Happy Spring!  This week we'll be looking for signs of spring!  We'll also get to watch the 8th graders play, "The Stinky cheese Man and Other Stupid Tales" on Monday.  The 8th graders were  AMAZING actors and the play was VERY funny!   Here are more activities for the 1st graders this week:


Language Arts: 

   We'll practice contraction words with will and are.  We'll also work on long vowel "tricker" words such as paper, baby and super.  We"ll practice these skills with the story "A Super Day at Happy Land."       



   We'll keep working on counting different amounts of money, especially with those pesky nickels!  Our math center games will help us out, too.  Next up will be our geometry unit!



   We'll continue to work on Unit 17 " Jesus Calls Himself the Good Shepherd".  We'll also start the special work of planning the All-School Mass for Weds., March 29.  We're looking forward to leading Mass again!


Science/Social Studies: 

We'll finish up our"Rockin With Rocks" unit.  We'll use our rock journal to help with our rock fact writing report and make a rock craftivity to go with it!
