We had a great time on our field trip yesterday! Thank you to the Parent Helpers and to the parents who came!
Reading - We focused on Setting! Setting is the time and place of a story. We read a variety of books, from books set at night, to books set at winter to get the whole picture about setting. On Friday, the students wrote in their journals a time and place for the book Snowy Day.
Here’s some pictures of the students doing Read to Someone, Word Work, Listen to Reading, and Book Shopping
Math: The students are rocking through subtraction. They learned how to do vertical subtraction and learned the trick to subtracting zero and all. They also are mastering the vocabulary for subtraction too like “difference” and “subtraction number sentence.” Good work everyone!
Writing - This week we picked one of our stories and we got ready to publish it! We edited it for spelling and punctuation, we made sure there was a beginning and an end, and we went through a checklist with a friend. Next week we will publish and read the stories!
Bible - The students are learning the exciting story about Joseph. He was Jacob’s favorite son and was given a colorful robe. His brothers were jealous of him so sold him off as a slave to Egypt. It seems like lots of bad things are going to happen to Joseph but God’s watching over him and going to do something amazing through his life!
Science - This week we looked at how different kinds of animals eat their food. We wrote in our wonder journals and made a quilt of all the animals!
Thursday and Friday there are Parent Teacher Conferences!
Please confirm your times and try to arrive at least 5 minutes before. I’m looking forward to sharing with you about how much your child has grown already in 1st grade!
