We hope to see you all there! First Graders should come dressed all in brown!
Friday May 24th is also a half day. Children will be leaving school at 11:45 a.m.
This week your child will be reviewing all the Word Walls with various chants and activities. The spelling challenge will be on Friday, May 24th.
The new five words that we are going to be introducing are:
For the rest of First Grade, we are going to continue reading Grasshopper on the Road by Arnold Lobel. The students will be discussing new vocabulary and making predictions about the story. We are also going to be discussing of the ending. If they were the authors, how would they end the story.
In Math, we are going to continue working with interpreting data. The students were introduced to the concept of graphs. Last week we discussed different kinds of graphs. We worked with picture graphs and tallies. We are going to be reinforcing these graphs and introducing a bar graph.
Data and graphs
In Science the students have been learning about Animal Babies. They are having a lot of fun learning about facts of animals of their interest. We are going to be creating riddles about Animal Babies and doing some arts and crafts.
