1D at it's best!
Hi 1D families~
In TILES this week, we reviewed consonant and vowel y; and changing y to I. We continue writing "special pages" about each leader and what makes them unique and special. These will be turned into a book that each student will bring home when we have completed pages for all of our friends. We had our writing assessment; spelling assessment and I have done most reading assessments and will finish those Monday. Will be glad to have those all behind us next week!
Our Math workshop this week continued work with fractions: basketball fractions and math workbook. Then we looked at 2D shapes and what the attributes are. Ask your child what they remember about vertices, curves, sides, etc. We played a "Guess My Rule" 2D shape game too.
1D boys and girls enjoyed our discussion on Natural Resources and truly have a mindset on helping and caring for our earth. They can tell you ways we can with the 3 R's: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Tiny the jersey cow came to visit Monday! We loved learning all about her and how to care for her. Plus, we watched a mini-demonstration of milking her!
The mini-celebration for Ms. Stanford was a big hit! Thanks so much to those of you who contributed to her gift card. Each child made a card to give her and she was so touched by all of it. As much as she left special memories in our hearts, she took precious memories with her as well.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING A WONDERFUL BISCUITS & BOOKS EVENT HAPPEN! The kiddos were so proud parading in their costumes and being able to share their work on their chosen book with you (in between eating a yummy biscuit!). Thank you for being there and making it a special time for your child.
