Math news from Mrs. Garcia...
The countdown is on!  We are officially down to the last 11 days of school.  You will be receiving an email from O.A. about Field Day.  Field Day will be held at Oasis Academy on the last day of school, June 7th, from 8:00 - 2:00.  ALL student are released at 2:00 this day!

Over the next week please have your 1st grader choose an IXL assignment from the 1st grade IXL objectives for math to complete for homework Monday - Thursday.  There will be no assigned homework.  I will be receiving updates through IXL in order to see who has completed assignments throughout the week.  If they choose NOT to complete an assignment each day, they will stay in for study hall.\\

Week 33

Image result for thank you
A big thank you for all the wonderful teacher appreciation gifts.  The teachers were definitely spoiled last week. 

  • This will be our last week for spelling words.  We will continue to have reading groups with homework and fluency/sight words to practice.
  • Spring MAPS testing will be during the week of May 21st.  This will give us a few days for make-up tests, in case of absences.
Last week in first grade:
  • We continued to practice finding the moral/lesson of a fable.
  • We learned how to use commas when writing the date and when making a list.
  • We added details to our small moment stories.
  • We completed some assessments in preparation for report cards.
This week in first grade:
  • We will continue to practice finding the moral of the story in preparation for assessment.
  • We will practice using commas in different ways.
  • We will add the beginning and ending to our small moment stories.
  • We will explore more plant and animal superpowers.
Math News From Miss Garcia
This week we will be reviewing shapes and measurement.  All of the IXL assigned this week deals with number sense.  Please have your 1st grader use the resources in their binder (100’s chart and number line) in order to accurately answer their IXL questions.  They can also use any of the strategies that they have been taught in class and write them out.

IXL - E.9 Add two multiples of 10
IXL - I.4 Subtract a multiple of 10
