The Burris Buzz

1st Grade News from Ms. Burris & Mrs. Griffin

Week in Review

We had a great week integrating our unit about careers with books, writing activities, and guest speakers. The students did an amazing job with their career presentations! We also began literacy and math centers. I am very impressed on the level of responsibility the students have shown in their independent and teamwork activities. Most exciting of all is the students began using their very own iPads this week.

Looking Ahead

A busy week ahead...

Our focus this week in reading will be story elements using the story Elmer. In math, we will be engaged with numbers 1-120 in our math centers. In Social Studies, we will celebrate America on 9/11 by wearing red, white, and blue. We will begin Unit 1 of Letterland and will be doing the homework together in class to set an example for the remainder of the year.
