In reading we are continuing to work with problem solving, sequencing the events, and summarizing as we read. Please continue to read at home. We are seeing much reading growth in these first grade friend friends.......AWESOME!
We are halfway through our math unit on addition, subtraction, and word problems. We will continue working with fact fluency, word problems, and comparing numbers. Once this unit is complete we begin Patterns and Functions. Students will construct, describe, and extend repeating patterns. They will also work with number sequence patterns.
For writing we are still working on opinion writing and using our collections for a while longer. Once we are done with the collections we will be working on writing a review. These writers are persuading and supporting their opinions with evidence.......big work for first graders! :)
Once we finish traveling through space we will start studying parts of plants and parts of animals.
Just a reminder that we are still playing outside at recess, so please continue to send proper winter attire. It is also important to have shoes for inside of the classroom because boots are getting very muddy and wet with the melting snow. Yeah melting snow!!
Thanks for your continued support.
