Fun in First
Be the change you want to see in the world. -Gandhi
Students explored with 2D shapes and had fun doing the "mystery shape bag"! Students gave clues about the number of vertices and sides and let others guess their shape.
2D shapes your first grader should know: square, rectangle, circle, triangle, hexagon and rhombus
3D shapes your first grader should know: cube, rectangular prism, sphere, triangular prism, cone, and cylinder.
What time is it?
Students are learning about the parts of a clock and how to tell time to the hour and half-hour. Students used their own little clock to show the time a partner asked for, and vise-versa.
We also watched/listened to the story, "The Grouchy Ladybug". The book tells the time throughout the story and students had to make their personal clocks match. They did great!
Students did such a great job on fractions. They really do understand the whole equal parts concept. After all, it wouldn't be FAIR if the parts weren't equal.
Fraction concepts your first grader should know: whole, halves, fourths, and equal parts.
