Welcome to Room 109!

(Week of 9/15/19)

I hope to see you at our open house (Grown-ups only please :) on Thursday, September 19.  We will meet from 6:00 - 6:45 to talk about a day in Room 109.  I will also have a chance to describe our new spelling program and answer any questions you may now have about
first grade.

This week we will continue to focus on short awith the “rotten apple” sound it makes when combined with m or n (am, ham, an, tan). As we have learned, 
when there is only one vowel at the beginning or in the middle of a word, the vowel usually stands for its short sound. We will also continue our work with characters and writing sentences. 


This week in math we will focus on the number ten.  We will look at ten frames, parts of ten, and using tally marks to represent objects. We will learn a fun story towards the middle of the week to help us remember our 10s facts (we call them “Best Friends of 10’).
