Please keep in mind that all whole group lessons will be on grade level and appropriate for all students. I am working in small groups with students so I can work with them at their individual level and focus on individual needs. If you have any concerns about what your child is doing in class, please feel free to contact me.
In Language Arts the first quarter we will be focusing on these standards:
Key ideas and details in literary text.
LAFSKRL1.1 - With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
LAFSKRL1.2 - With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details.
LAFSKRL1.3 - With prompting and support, identify characters, settings, and major events in a story.
Key idea and details in informational text.
LAFSKRI1.1 - With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
LAFSKRI1.2 - With prompting and support identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.
LAFSKRI1.3 - With prompting and support describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text.
Focus Writing Standard(s):
LAFSKW1.3 - Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to narrate a single event or several loosely linked events, tell about the events n the order in which they occurred and provide a reaction to what happened.
LAFSKW3.8 - With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.
You can help by talking about the characters in a story, the plot, the main idea, and the sequence of events in the story. Also talk about the vocabulary in stories you read and in the conversations you have with your child. Discuss asking questions about words your child does not understand. Ask your child questions about vocabulary from the story. Encourage your child to ask you questions about the story and vocabulary. This should not be done every evening when you read to your child, a couple nights.
We will be working on hearing sounds in words and using what we know about the sounds. I am working in small groups at the student's level. Reading and recalling what you read are important tasks we are working on.
In Math our focus standards are:
Count sequence 0-10.
MAFSKCC1.1 - Count to 100 by ones and by tens
MAFSKCC1.2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence instead of having to begin at 1.
MAFSKCC1.3 - Read and write numerals from 0-20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 with 0 representing a count of no objects.
We are working on settling conflict and sharing. (SS.K.C.2.2 – Demonstrate that conflicts among friends can be resolved in ways that are consistent with being a good citizen. SS.K.C.2.3 – Describe fair ways to make group decisions.)
