ELA/Phonics 12:35-1:20pm
We are now going into Unit 7-8 of SuperKids. Unfortuanately the kids do not have their workbooks because we use one workbook at a time. I have contacted Zaner-Bloser to see if I can somehow get the kids set up with an online SuperKids portal. Please do not waste printing paper or ink..I rather save it for when we absolutely need it. We will do it the old fashioned way with some paper and pencil! Please use whatever you need to, I just ask no crayon, pen, marker…only pencil.
 
-Objective: We will distinguish the difference between long and short vowel sounds. Today we will focus on silent e.
-Please first watch this YouTube video on silent e and how it transforms the word: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6j5dVs4QLpw
-Afterwards, have your child look at workbook pages 1 & 2. Have them read the word before and then AFTER the silent e. Notice how the word completely changes because of one letter!
-Have them create a chart (see below) and write the first word and what the word becomes after adding the silent e in a notebook or on paper. They should be reading the words as they write them. Do this for all the words on page 1 & 2 Example: 

  e
kit kite

-On page 3 , have your child first look at the yellow words. Have them write each one down separately. Have them cross out the e and mark the vowel with a long vowel marking. Then for the pictures, have them read each word and point to the matching picture. Read the words on the side of the page as well. If you have ANY questions, please contact me..I am here for you! <3

  • When something is real, we know it is true because of evidence. Sort of like when we do a science project. We know a bird flying is REAL because it has wings.

    – Get captured by a giant
    – Ride your bike into outer space

Tuesday March 17th 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day First Grade! I sure am lucky to teach you!
If you would like for your child to “copy down” their homework as our normal daily morning routine, scroll down to the homework section. 

 

Classwork:
Scheduled times are flexible, try to stay within the same hourly time frame.

 

  1. Math: 8:00-8:55am
    8:00-8:25am- Zearn.org (students know their username and password. Please contact me on Class Dojo or through email if your child is having trouble logging in)
    I have also supplied a St. Patricks Day color by number for the students to complete. They enjoy these and it’s a nice transitioning activity but also a great brain break!
    8:25-8:55am- Math green workbook pg 225
    In this lesson, students will learn how to add 3 numbers together. Put emphasis on that students will need to find which 2 numbers add to 10 OR find 2 numbers to make a doubles fact solve before solving the remainder of the equation.
    Have them watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81NfQ350vw8
    Have students complete the guided practice questions with adult help on pg 226.
    Have students work independently on pg 227 for questions 3-8. Number 9 may be tricky and can be extra help using counters.
    Assign pg 228 for additional work.

  2. 2. Science:
    9:00-9:45am

For this assignment, students will need their Science journals. For this week, we will be exploring space! The students have been so excited and are looking forward to this portion of our unit!
Go onto Youtube.com and/or paste this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCDVN7DCzYE


Have the students title the entry “Earth”. Watch the video and answer these three questions in full, complete, sentences. I do not put too much pressure on the proper spelling of words. I encourage the students to sound out words which encourages their writing.
-What planet did we study today? (Today we learned about planet….)
-How far is Earth from the sun (Earth is the third planet from the sun)
-Why makes Earth so special? (It is the only planet able to sustain life)
If you child would like to add additional facts about Earth that they caught in the video that is great! Please remind and reinforce proper sentence formation, punctuation.

 

*if a brain break is needed for some movement, go to GoNoodle.com – the students love this site for movement! *

3. Religion: 9:50-10:35 (will probably be finished before this time as we only do a page a day!)

Religion books to Chapter 12 Day 1 pg 144-145

Today we will write about:
What is your favorite food?
Why is it your favorite food?
If you had to pick one food to eat forever, what would it be?
Why would you pick this food?
Students should be writing in full, complete sentences and we are trying to limit our repetition of answers.

After the students can complete the comprehension questions on page 6 in their Superkids classwork book (very thin books- they know which ones). If your child has page 6 complete, please still read the story.

Afterwards, the students can complete the St. Patrick’s Day word hunt.

7. 1:10-1:55 Creativity Period:
Use this period to have your child play a board game, complete a puzzle, drawing, painting, playing with clay. I know this is going to be a huge transition for these kids as it is for me. I want them to still enjoy learning as we become used to this-together.

 

  1. 2:00-2:45 D.E.A.R/Phonics Online- Epic! Readers & Khan Academy Kids App

WHAT ARE WE UP TOO?

What does a plant REALLY need to grow? / Parts of a plant:

To close out Chapter 2 in Science which taught us many things about plants and animals, first grade got to do one of Ms. Rychalski’s favorite lessons to teach today! First grade received 3 Casablanca Lilies and were allowed to explore the stems, leaves and buds. We then placed the lilies in 3 different locations in the classroom. One by the window WITH water, one by the window WITHOUT water and one in the closet WITHOUT sunlight but with water. We then received “plant journals” where we will record our findings daily for this week. Lastly, we got to see what would happen when we placed white carnations in food coloring. This is called the capillary principle. Stay tuned for what will happen at the end of the week.

Making TEN!
First Grade had extra fun on Friday in our Math Stations. Since we have been learning to make 10 using a ten frame and a number line, Ms. Rychalski found some fun board games and memory games to help us with our skills of making ten. We will continue to use these stations to help us with our newest math chapter. How many different ways can we make 10?

Catholic School’s Week:
First Grade sure has been busy this week! On Monday, we made survival kits for the FDNY. Thank you to all the parents who donated candy/brown paper bags. On Tuesday, we had the Olympics! Wednesday we watched the 8th grade present their presidents. Thursday was career day- we presented to 2nd grade and also got to pet friendly TSA dogs.

Brooklyn Children’s Museum:

Today we took a trip to the Brooklyn Children’s museum! We had such a great time exploring all the exhibits. We even had a chance to work with Mariel in the “Beautiful Us!” class. We made necklaces or bracelets out of different pieces of cloth. 

Decorating our Tree:
First Graders got together to decorate our class tree!

 

It’s Saint Nick!
First Grade and all of Holy Angels received a special treat today, Saint Nicholas came to visit us! We left a shoe outside our door and then bells were heard. We got left a sweet treat for being so good this year!

 

The Mayflower:
In Religion, we have been discussing the true meaning of Thanksgiving and all we have to be thankful for. As an interactive Religion/Social Studies unit, the students created their OWN versions of the Mayflower. We have some pretty patriotic boats! During this activity, we asked ourselves questions of how we think the pilgrims felt coming to a new land with new people. We also discussed how they put their faith in God. 

Social Studies: Wants and Needs in a Community
In our second chapter of Social Studies, we have created a community based upon what a community needs to survive. We also discussed the difference between wants and needs. This has been a class project and the students have made sketches and also drafted up lists of what each team community will have. We will present our final projects to Mr. Berry in the classroom!

Double Trouble! :
In math, we have been working on doubles and doubles +1 facts. To help us identify which is a doubles fact and a doubles +1 fact we used our bodies today. Especially our hands and feet! We even learned a catchy song to help us remember doubles. 


Pumpkin Investigation

All last week, first grade investigated pumpkins. We explored the outside and inside of pumpkins, made estimations on how many seeds are inside of pumpkins, counted the lines on pumpkins and finally got to explore the inside of a pumpkin! We each got a turn digging inside and feeling around; even using our five senses to help us explore! Hmm… feels like… zombie brains! 

Halloween Fun! 
First grade had a blast spending our spooktacular day doing some mummy math, batty subtraction, and finding out the secret code for witches brew! We ended the day with some well deserved treats and a Halloween movie!

Technology 1st Grade – Autobiography

Posted on November 1, 2019

Dear Parents,

Please teach your child their month, date and year he/she was born or have it written on paper that they will bring to their technology class. We will begin an autobiography project on the computer. When we get further into the project, I will be asking for additional information about your child, for example when their first tooth came in, etc. and pictures of your child from birth to this year.

Thank you,

Ms. Jackie Cassa
