First Grade 2015-2016
Note From the Teacher
This was another fantastic week in first grade. We explored finding the problem & solution in stories we read, but we learned how to use picture clues and word clues to justify our thinking. We also spent time building reading stamina and practicing our literacy stations. Our literacy stations will be up and running by October 1st and I will begin meeting with small groups. In Writing we began our unit on writing personal narratives. We will spend a few weeks learning the components of writing these. In math we began Unit 2. In Science we continued force and motion and had fun working in teams to build ramps that would allow objects to roll at minimum of 12 inches. Today we tested our ramps with the other first grade classes in order to see which team built the best ramp. We had a blast!!!!
Telling the major events in fiction stories
Story Narratives (small moment stories)
