Mrs. Domkus' 1st Grade Class

  •  

    Back to School
     
    This is such an exciting time of year!  I am looking forward to meeting each of my new first graders and getting to know them!   Terramar's theme this school year is kindness, and we will work each day to exemplify this character trait! 
     
    The first week of the year will consist of getting to know each other and learning the rules and procedures of our new classroom.  There will also be some informative assessments as I get to know my students' needs and abilities.  New students will also learn their way around our campus and get to meet many adults who will be important to them in their everyday school life!

English Language Arts

  • Vowels     Writing  
     
    This week in Language Arts... 
     
    The first week of school will be spent working on our listening comprehension, as we listen to books about friendship and the beginning of the school year.  We will begin to practice some centers that we will participate in for the rest of the school year.  We will review the short vowel sounds and how to blend them together.  In writing, we will write about our summers, ourselves and our feelings about the new school year.
     
    Here are some games students can play to practice creating words with 'short a' and 'short e'... Making Words with 'an'   Making Words with 'at'   Making Words with 'en'   Making Words with 'et'
     
    Here are some interactive stories that students can listen to and read to practice the 'short a' and 'short e' sounds... Zac the Rat   Peg the Hen
     
    These videos will help the students practice reading words with the 'short a' and 'short e' sounds... Jack Hartmann - Short a   Jack Hartmann - Short e

    The first week of school in math, we will discover how high we can count and write numbers.  We will be introduced to and explore some manipulatives that we will be using to solve problems in first grade.  We will be taking a pre-test to show Mrs. Domkus what we already know and what we need to learn in first grade.

     

    Here is a game in which students can match 2 numbers that equal ten... Kitten Match

     

    In this game, students will match pictures with addition number sentences... Addition Up to 10

     

    This activity will help students practice their counting up to 120... Count Objects up to 120
