Reading and Grammar
Unit 2 has introduced some challenging concepts, but these mathematicians are ready for them! First graders have been working on number sense by working with number grids, comparing numbers, and looking at telephone numbers. They have also explored weather and temperature, time to the hour, and compliments of 10. I think they will really enjoy working with pennies and nickels next week! Below see how Lily and Sadie completed their colorful thermometers and are now playing the game Rolling for 50.
Students have been studying mentor authors to see what grown up writers do. We then take the ideas and apply them! We have been making our stories come to life by making our characters move, talk, think, and feel, and we have been telling our stories bit by bit! Last week, students "fixed up" their work so that other students in the class could read it. They used special editing glasses and pens to make their writing the best it could be. We then shared student writing with the class. All students had an opportunity to leave a positive comment to their friends! When writer's came back to check their comments, they were beaming with pride! I'm looking forward to showcasing student writing again soon. Eventually we will invite you into the classroom for an Author's Share as well!
