End of the Year Projects
Our First Grade Curriculum
For some fun for the end of the year, we're taking a big look at poetry. We're studying different types of poems, reading poems, and writing our own poems! We're also spending a lot of our Daily 5 time to work on our "published" books.
A huge portion of our writing time is used for our final books that will be "published" at the end of the year. Our class is doing a great job coming up with fun and exciting narratives! Mr. Godleski and I are busy as editors as they continue the writing process.
In the last week of Unit 13, we're looking at a variety of words that use the "es" suffix. We've learned that any word that ends in s, x, z, ch, or sh will have an es. I know these kids are going to rock their Fundations test at the end of the week and be ready for 2nd grade!
We are officially done with our math assessments for the end of the year! We're spending the last few days of school reviewing some of the concepts we've learned in fun ways.
As mentioned, we're beginning our animal research project! Students have been split up into groups to research a particular animal. They're discovering their physical characteristics, where they live, what they eat, and more. At the end of the week, each group will be making a larger poster to present their findings.
