1st Grade Curriculum for Week 3, Aug. 5th-Aug. 9th

Reading–Students are practicing how to differentiate between fiction and nonfiction genres, and respond to the texts. Students are learning to read to find the gist, read to discover the meaning of unknown words, and the author’s purpose. Each class has been taught the “I PICK” chant to help students find books that suit their preference and reading level.

Here is the link of the chant if you would like to practice it with your child at home:
