Hello Room 17 Families!

This Friday, 1st Grade will celebrate our 120th Day!  Students can dress like a rock star on 2/28, as part of the celebration.  Thank you for your donations for our 120 Day Rotations!  Please send in all donations by Wednesday, 2/26.  Students should bring-in their sandwich size ziploc of 120 items by Friday, 2/28.

In ELA this week, our Essential Question is "What insects do you know about?  How are they alike and different?"  The Literature Anthology story for homework this week will be Hi! Fly Guy.  We will learn about text evidence and Point of View.  Our phonics focus will be the long i sound (i, y, igh, ie).  

In Math, we will study double-digit subtraction.  As always, it is important to keep math facts (adding/subtracting) fresh to build for future success.  Students can access Fact Fluency practice via their Clever badges in both Moby Max, and via Math Seeds.  Flashcard games can also be helpful.

We are looking forward to a wonderful week!


Mrs. Cirka
