FIRST-GRADE WEEKLY HOMEWORK SHEET

April 13 - April 17, 2020

 

We hope you all had a fantastic spring break, a blessed Easter and all your loved ones are staying healthy.  We are excited to continue with the engaging virtual education for your child. NEW MATERIALS FOR YOUR CHILD WILL BE READY TO BE PICKED UP THIS WEEK IN THE FRONT ENTRANCE OF THE SCHOOL WEDNESDAY AT 12 NOON - FRIDAY AT 3 PM. The new material we are preparing will not be used until next week, April 20-24. 

Thank you for submitting your child’s work using the Google Classroom Assignments. It has really streamlined all the documented work. 

We will be alternating between reading groups and class meetings one week, and individual conferences the next week. This week we are back to our individual conference schedule. Your teacher will send you a reminder of your scheduled time. Page 5 of this homework sheet details the weekly plans through May. The schedule is also posted on Google Classroom. 

Beginning NEXT week, April 20, we will start a science unit on plants. You will need approximately one cup of potting soil. The remaining science materials will be included with the materials you pick up at school available Wednesday at 12:00 through Friday at 3:00 PM. 

We begin this week working on the Meal Prayer. You will find the prayer on page 4 of this homework sheet. 

 1st grade standards we will meet this week: Reading/Writing- informational text, narrative writing, and pronouns. Math- classify shapes and find and name two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes based on their attributes. Religion- Easter, liturgical seasons and prayers. Science- how seeds grow. 

We suggest you take 10-15 minutes of choice time/recess after each item of work is done. For example your child may work on a puzzle, free draw, go on a walk outside, make an obstacle course in the yard, make up a talent show with family members, build Legos, play with playdough, etc. We discourage screen time in your child’s free time. Even taking Legos to build outside would be a great idea!
