We are so glad that Beth Schweitzer has joined our team of 'grandparents' who are willing to listen to our first graders read during our independent reading time. She is so patient and kind to the children as they sound out words.
The students have been learning about a few digraphs (sh, th, and ng) in reading. They also have worked with capitalizing proper nouns in grammar. At the end of last week we focused exclusively on adding doubles facts quickly. They used their math fact cards, wrap-ups, and IXL on the I-Pads to practice and then improve their math skills. In writing they just learned how to add commas when listing items in their stories.
