Test every Friday.  5 questions and a writing section (worth 17 points as of 1/11/18).

We are learning about writing sentences.  Every sentence must start with a capital letter, end with punctuation, make a complete thought, and have all the words in order.  There is also a weekly grammar quiz each Friday.  
We are constantly working on writing sentences that begin with a capital letter, end with punctuation, and contain a complete thought.  This will be something we will do all year long.  Please remind your student that it is important to begin and end a sentence correctly. 

Unit 4 Lesson Target(s)

* Verbs


*  Adverbs:  Time Order Words

Short Quiz every Friday. 2 questions (worth 2 points). 

One goal for writing is to restate the question to answer it. 
For example: 
What is your favorite day of the week?  My favorite day of the week is Sunday.
We practice this skill every day with a daily journal question. 

Another important goal for writing in the 1st grade for the student to be able to write a paragraph containing 4-5 sentences that stay focused on the topic.  
For example:
Student is asked to write about their favorite animal.  The student would write about only one animal and give many details about that one animal and not mention other animals.       
Encourage your child to write as neatly as possible.  It is important that the writing is legible.  As I
remind the students often, their handwriting must be legible to become a superstar 2nd grader (which 
is the goal for every 1st grader).  Please remind them to take their time and write neatly!! 

Penmanship Grading 
(not an "official" grade)

Q=Quality Work
Q4= 2nd Grade Level
Q3=1st Grade Level
Q2= Below 1st Grade Level (needs work)
Q1=Needs a lot more practice!!!

Your student will copy a weekly poem to practice their penmanship skills. I am already seeing progress.
