First Grade Newsletter
Week of January 31, 2022
In ReadyGen we continue to focus on characters, setting, and retelling. Students are learning about choices with money using fiction and nonfiction text. Students are also learning the difference between fiction and non-fiction reading material. Vocabulary and parts of speech (nouns, proper nouns, and verbs) are essential parts of our lessons. Syllables, punctuation, contractions, and compound words are points of focus in our grammar lessons.
