1. adding details - we'll learn to be more specific with our details. For example, instead of saying My grandpa is nice. We might write, My grandpa grows some of the best tomatoes around. When I go to visit, he always lets me take a big bucket out to the garden and pick as many tomatoes as I can.
2. using descriptive (juicy) words - For example, instead of writing The tomatoes are good, we'll learn to write something like The red, ripe tomatoes are so juicy they burst when you put them in your mouth.
First Grade - This will be our final week working on two-digit addition and subtraction. Click here for some great games to do at home to practice addition and subtraction.
