The Burris Buzz

1st Grade News from Ms. Burris

Our Week in Review

This week, we learned about retelling a story using the Reading Rope. We also learned to add using three numbers and Friends of Ten. Finally, we learned all about the seasons, with a focus on Fall. Friday was a great day with Apple Day, Football Friday and special snack, and erupting apples!

A Look Ahead

In Science, we are going to become Geologists and begin our study of rocks. Each student will need to bring a fist sized rock on Friday to create their Pet Rock. The following week, we will begin learning about various types of rocks and the students will need to bring 5 rocks each to examine. In Math, we will focus on turn around facts with addition. In reading, we will focus on Stamina and decoding strategies.
