Mrs.Cappello's Busy "B" Corner for First Grade (2020-2021 edition) .   

August 3, 2020 - a little over a month until we meet!  Have you been doing your summer reading and IXL?

New first graders please click the word  SUPPLY  to see what you need to buy for September!

   The list is the same for both Mrs. Riccardelli and myself.  Please note we were very specific as to brands, counts and colors.  We know through experience that these are the best quality and will be most durable for in school use.  They may cost a bit more but it pays off in the long run.


Please click on the blue link below for book fair and summer reading going into first grade.

Summer Reading for Kindergarten moving up to 1st Grade  

Incoming first grade summer skills:  Please use your Kindergarten IXL username and password for access.  It will not change for now.  You should be reviewing all level B skills from Kindergarten.  We will use Level C in first grade. 

For summer math again review Level B(or grade K), then go to level C(or grade 1), skills: A counting; B addition; K comparing; M Place Value; N spatial sense; and R patterns.  I have highlighted specific skills that were part of Kindergarten, they are usually the first 2 skill topics.

In Communication Arts, read, read, read.  Use the blue link to Summer Reading above to find suggested books.  Additionally, review your SuperKids memory words and spelling from kindergarten.  Golly and the SK gang are ready to welcome you back. Your very first spelling test will be number words from zero to 10 so practice them as well.  Practice your printing skills and be sure to hold pencils properly and form your letters correctly as well..Top to bottom, left to right.  Try (not required - suggested) keeping a journal of interesting and fun things you do this summer.  That is a great way to practice penmanship and drawing skills..

IXL in Language Arts will go on a little break in the summer but be sure I will let you know as soon as the renewed subscription kicks back in.  

Welcome to First Grade, I can't wait to see you in September!  Be on the lookout for your ClassDojo invite in September.  

See you soon but in the meantime:

  • BE well
  • BE safe
  • BE the best YOU you can be because no one can do it for you!
