Other Important Information


Lexia:  Your child is working on the year-end goal of reaching level 10 (completing Level 9) using the Language Arts program, Lexia.  Please help your child go to this website at home so that he/she may obtain this goal!  We will also be working to reach this goal here at school. Go to Lexiacore5.com.  You will need my email address, thubbard@scsc.k12.in.us  for the first time that you sign in. Your child can login using their username and password   Below I have broken the levels down by month.  If your child completes each level listed by the end of each month, he/she should have no problem reaching Level 10 by the end of the year.  Many children continue to work towards higher levels to better prepare them for 2nd grade!

Story for the Week: Sam

We will be reviewing Kindergarten reading skills and spelling words for the first six weeks. During this time, students will have 4-5 high frequency words for spelling. Beginning week 7, spelling words will increase to 15 words each week.  The lists will include 5-7 high frequency words, as well as phonetically spelled words.  Students will later be writing a sentence for the test as well.  A link to all the spelling words for the year is on the right.


  Genre: Realistic Fiction

  Phonics focus: m /m/, s, ss /s/, t /t/ and Short a: a

  Fluency Skill:

  Text-Based Comprehension: CHARACTER and QUESTIONING  Phonemic Awareness:Initial, Medial, and Final Phonemes; Segment and Blend Phonemes; Blend Onsets and Rimes

Spelling:  a, see, green, I, am

Sentence:  I see a green bug.

Amazing Words:  furniture, unwind, middle, yawn, tidy, cozy, straw


**Reading and Spelling tests on Friday!**
The comprehension part of the test will not be graded for at least the first 6 weeks (perhaps longer.)  Taking a test like this is a new experience for most first graders.  We spend time learning HOW to do this first.  I will let you know when I will begin grading this portion of the test.

Mon: Read "Sam"; Spelling words 1-5 3 times each.
Tues: Read "Sam"; Spelling words 1-5  3 times each.

Wed:  Say each spelling word in a sentence.

Thur: Read Word Sheet; Write the spelling sentence 1 time.

Fri:  None


A good way to help your child be successful on the weekly spelling tests is to do a practice test.  Do this by giving your child the spelling words and have him/her write them as if it were a real test.  For any words missed, have him/her practice writing them five times each.  Then redo the test again.  Continue practicing in this way until the words are mastered.


We will be working on writing through drawing.  We'll also be reviewing early writing concepts.


Please have your child complete the front and the back of the homework sheet. You may help your child as needed!  On days a new skill is introduced, you will receive a family letter.  This letter is to demonstrate to parents how to help your child with the new math skill.  This week in Math we will be learning the following skill: Counting on.  

 Monday:  None

Tuesday:  None

Wednesday:  None

Thursday:  None

Friday:  No test this week
