Grade 1C—Ms Appleby

Room 104

April Explorations:

Reading: Continue with making connections and asking

questions when reading, independently and with an adult.

Continue with daily Home Reading Program

Writing: Begin persuasive writing. As always we focus on

editing and adding detail to our written work

Math: We will continue with addition and subtraction

strategies, as well as finishing up money and starting

graphing.

Science: We will learn about living things. How can we care

for and respect all living things?

Home Practice Activities

Read daily! How do the pictures help you understand what you are

reading? Try sounding out the words, letters and sounds that you

know.

Practice asking questions. When reading, have your child wonder

about something they have read

Practice recognizing the coins and their names. Adding coins up

to 20¢.

What living things do you have in your house? What do they need

to survive?

Practice identifying the similarities and differences between the

4 seasons (clothing, weather, leaves, activities).

Important info:

With the weather changing please make sure to dress your child

appropriately each day as they spend two 20 minute breaks outside.

Some days they will need a heavy coat with mitts, others just

a light jacket!

Our room can be very warm (even in the winter months). Please

consider having your child wear a short sleeve shirt and bring a

sweater and/or long sleeved shirt to wear outside with his/her

outdoor clothes.

As always, donations of Kleenex, ziplock bags, and whiteboard

markers are appreciated as they get used up very quickly in the

classroom

Thank you for all your support!——Ms. Appleby
