Some very creative and clever Leprechaun traps. Will we be able to catch one, or will we be tricked?

March News in Grade One

March 8th       teacher inservice day….no school
March 15th     2nd trimester ends
March 22nd   report cards go home

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 friends….AWESOME!

Topic 10 is all about strategies to add tens and ones.
We will be using models, mental math, and 100 charts.
We are still working with place value of a 2 digit numbers.  
When we begin topic 11 we will be using strategies to subtract ten.

For writing we are still working on opinion writing.
The writers are persuading and supporting their
opinions with evidence….big work for first graders. :)

Once we finish traveling through space in science
we will start studying parts of plants and parts of animals.  

Just a reminder that we are still playing outside at recess
time, so please continue to send proper winter attire.
 It is also important to have shoes for inside of the classroom.

Thanks for your continued support.
