Miss Culver's First Grade News
January 27, 2016
Math: This week we finished Topic 9. We made lists to solve number riddles and tested. We began Topic 10 and have started adding groups of ten. Next week we will begin adding with and without regrouping.
Reader's Workshop: This week we finished our character unit. We worked in character book clubs to identify character traits across series. We also acted out parts of our character books like movie star readers.
Writer's Workshop: This week we began organizing our books even more by adding a table of contents. Students came up with chapter titles for each page of their book. Students also worked on writing more than one fact on each page.
Social Studies: This week we created our own maps of the classroom. Students are excited to share these with you at the Student Showcase.
We began morning meetings this week. Tuesday morning we filled each other's emotional bank accounts (buckets) by complimenting the person sitting on our right side.
