Social Studies

In social studies, we continue to expand our learning about Bransford's community. We have rescheduled the Fire Department to come on Monday, February 1. We have many questions ready to ask our special visitors.


Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of practice on a daily basis to make things that are challenging become really easy! Recognizing the counting pattern is an essential component of a young child's number sense development. Your child is expected to count by 1's up to 100 from any given number. He/she is also expected to count backward from 20 this grading period. Correctly writing numbers from 1-20 is an expectation, too. Mastery is achieved when a student is able to consistently meet the standard.

Make Reading a Part of Your Family Time!

Family time is so important. Why not make reading part of this valuable time with your kids? Here are some tips for integrating reading into your daily family activities:
  • Read bedtime stories
  • Play a board game
  • Visit your local library
  • Read a recipe and cook something yummy together!
  • Create a comfy reading space in your home. (Blanket forts are the best!)
  • Put your child in charge of reading the grocery list at the store.
  • Read a chapter book to your child and discuss the story after each chapter. (Charlotte's Web is always a good choice)
