Week 7 in Primary 1

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, and fun Dashain break. I look forward to seeing the kids on October 2, 2017.


The kids have worked hard on reading old favorite storybooks. They shared details with their partners from their learn-about-the-world books. On Thursday, they celebrated all their reading success with their Grade 3 reading buddy.


Like in reading, the kids have been working hard. They recently completed the final step in the writing process; they published their narrative stories. We celebrated their writing today. Teachers and students came in to share in their success. It was a great way to end the week.

The kids have brought home their first 7 weeks of writing. I have saved their published writing pieces to add to our classroom library. I look forward to showing you them at Parent-Teacher Conferences.


  • The kids practiced describing a triangle (sides and vertices)
  • They were introduced to number stories. Using counters, they represented addition and subtraction problems.

Science/Social Studies

This week we answered the following questions:

  1. Where does rain come from?
  2. What is precipitation?
  3. What is a blizzard/tornado/hurricane?

The kids enjoyed creating a tornado using 2 water bottles and a connector.


School resumes on October 2, 2017.

Early Dismissal at 11:50 on October 4,2017.

Parent-Teacher Conferences on October 6, 2017.

  • There is no school on this day for the elementary students (October 6).

Take Home Folder

Please send the folder back with your child each day.

This weekend, I would recommend logging into Raz-Kids so that your child may listen to different stories. Also, lessons C.1-C.9 under Numbers and Counting Up to 10 on IXL would reinforce what we did this week in class.

Kindest Regards,
Colleen and Tripta
