Team Soar Grade 1 News

Hello Families,

Since I know many of you do prefer electronic copy of information, I will post all information on our Jefferson Webpage. I’ve included the directions on how to get there below. If you would prefer the paper copy, just let me know, and I would be glad to print it off for you.

  1. Go to:
  2. Go to the tab STAFF and hover over and click Team Soar
  3. At that point you have several options to click on photos, calendar, etc


Our next spelling test will take place on Thursday February 1. Our words are: didn’t, hadn’t, hasn’t, haven’t, isn’t, aren’t, wasn’t, wouldn’t, couldn’t, weren’t

In Superkids we will be working on contractions with “n’t.” We will also continue to work on authors purpose, sequence of events, and main idea with supporting details.

In writing we will be working on creating friendly letters.

In math we will continue to work on adding double digit numbers with and without regrouping. We will also be working on subtraction with and without regrouping. Since this can be a challenging skill in first grade, we will be spending a lengthy amount of time on it.


As we wrap up our presentations on animals (which have been so lovely so far!) we will move onto studying about landforms and regions. This is my favorite unit! The kids will be receiving “passports” and going around the world to visit these very special land formations and then investigating the regions and cultures of the people whom live there. Don’t be surprised if they tell you they went to the Swiss Alps one day ;)


We do have a few upcoming events such as bring your family to school day on February 2. You will be receiving more information about the event via our Jefferson updates. On February 14 we will be having our Friendship Party. If your child chooses to partake, please be sure you send in enough items for all 20 of them.


Have a wonderful week!


Mrs. Culp
