HOMEWORK THIS WEEK:  Spelling words, 3 pages of Language arts, 1 page of math

Monday: This morning we worked on our spelling words, calendar, unfinished work in their files, and had centers.  The centers included: iPads, math (measurement), Letterbook (writing words, reading sentences and gluing pictures of to match the phrase), reading family words, matching beginning sounds, addition (picnic scene with ants to help figure out the adding problem), fill in the missing number, and sequencing cards (putting pictures in order of sequence).  We went to music, and in the afternoon, napped, watched the band concert and part of a Veggies Tales movie "Lord of the Beans".

Tuesday: This morning we worked on our spelling words, calendar, unfinished work, puzzles, games, and math with dice.  We worked on several pages of our Letterbook (matching pictures with the story line).  In math, we measured pictures with paper clips.  In Science, we learned the life cycle of the ladybug and used Scholastic to see a ladybug emerge from it's larvae stage.  In religion we watched Veggie Tale The Wizard of Ha's.  It is about the Prodigal Son.  We had PE in the afternoon, extra recess and earlier in the day I read about the Solar System.  

Wednesday: In the morning we worked on our spelling words, calendar, unfinished work, puzzles, War, and writing sight words on "bumpy" paper.  I am reading to the students about our Solar System and today I talked about being good stewards of our world.  They learned about global warming and showed them a graph how much the earth overall temperature has gone up since the last 150 years.  I explained what happens when the polar ice caps melt, the effect on animals such as the polar bears and penguins and coastal shores disappearing with water levels rising. They understand the significance of the dangers in pollution such as smog and littering.  I also told them that this can turn around by our actions.   We finished the Letterbook KQJ and will be starting our last one tomorrow. We had a math assessment on measurement, Spanish, and worked on the Solar System Project. In the afternoon, we continued the Solar System project and had library, too, along with some extra recess time right after lunch.

Thursday: In the morning we worked on our morning work: spelling words, calendar, unfinished work and those that have finished any unfinished work get to do board games, puzzles, read books or anything else that stimulates their minds.  Then I read a little more about the Solar System and talked about the ozone layer, asteroids, the definition of a crater and if Mercury has any craters (ask your child.  If they paid attention they should know).  We went to Mommy Mass which was very special and afterwards we had a nice feast brought to us by the first grade parents.  Since the students were so excited, we went outside to play for a little bit.  We finished the morning with the Letterbook XYZ and learned about scales in math.  In the afternoon, we had a few minutes of extra recess, computer class and finished the day with Fellowship where the students learned about safety especially in the summer with pool season and playing outside will be frequent.
