Hello Oasis Families,
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!! It was nice to have a little snow to play in over the weekend. Don’t forget to label extra clothing items (gloves, scarves, hats) so if they get misplaced we will be able to find the owner.
- Valentine’s Day- Our class will have a little party on Valentine’s Day. If your child would like to bring Valentine’s cards, please have him or her fill out the from section with their name, but leave the “To” section blank. This makes it easier to hand them out to the class. We will have a treat and do a craft.
- Valentine Dress Fundraiser- For a donation of $1, students may wear red, white or pink clothing (clothing must be modest, covering the body as much as a uniform would). Please see the email sent out by the school for more information. All proceeds will go to Mrs. Antoniono and her family.
- President’s Day- No school on February 18. Enjoy a nice long weekend.
Last week in first grade:
- We reviewed long and short vowel sounds.
- We reviewed open and closed syllables, and how to break words into syllables by spotting and dotting vowels.
- We made boring sentences more exciting by using adjectives. (Check out our adjective flowers in the hallway by our classroom.)
- We completed our nonfiction Penguin books.
- We made adjective flowers.
This week in first grade:
- We will continue practicing using adjectives and looking for them in sentences.
- We will begin learning how to use conjunctions and writing complex sentences.
- We will create projects showing what makes our hearts full by drawing and writing.
- We will learn about the life cycle of polar bears.
- We will share our polar bear books with Mrs. Rowlett’s class and they will share their penguin books with us. We will then write about the similarities and difference of the 2 animals.
A Math Message from Miss Garcia:
This week the first grade students will continue to tell and write time to the hour and half hour. They will take an assessment on time this Wednesday. We will also find 1 more, 1 less and 10 more, 10 less than a given number. These skills can be practiced at home on a 100 chart.
Have a great week!
Mrs. Rowlett & Miss Garcia
