First Grade Weekly Update

Homework has a different look to it this week.  The Menus I have did not reflect our classwork this week.  Going forward there will be a mix of the Homework menu and math and Superkids worksheets.

Remember, if your child is interested in creating a book for the Diocesan Young Author’s Fair, please let me know and I can send home the guidelines.  We will be doing a class book in the classroom, but budding authors are welcome to do individual books on their own.  Books will be due on March 4.

Here is a look at what we are working on this week:

English Language Arts:

  • read  Make a Monster,  Icky’s Play, The Spingle Spangle Talent Show 
  • sight words:  would     could     some     one     new     were
  • long vowel words spelled with ue  (blue) and ie (tie)
  • contractions
  • narrative writing


  • moving forward and backward on a number line by increments of 1, 5 and 10
  • addition and subtraction with multiples of 10
  • compare pairs of 2 digit numbers
  • mentally find the number that is 10 more/less than a given 2 digit number
