First Grade Weekly
Friday, September 16
Notes from Ms. Dreger
Homework: Students will have a reading log and some math. We will begin spelling the week of September 26.
Friday Folders: Students have their Friday folders (blue folders) in their backpacks. Please keep the papers inside and return the folders on Monday.
Class Dojo and Seesaw: I have sent this information out. If you have not already done so, please get connected with both. If you need any help please let me know.
- Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
- The Fox and the Grapes
We listened to and discussed a folktale as well. It is from Spain.
- Medillo Pollito (The Little Half-Chick)
Students listened to The Lion and the Mouse on Seesaw then illustrated it. Students also drew a picture to go with their favorite fable we have read. Students have also gotten onto epic (an app) to read/listen to books.
We also continued practicing center rotations. During this practice students had an opportunity to explore some of the math tools they will be using throughout the year.
Students began using Seesaw during math centers! Check out their patterns and number towers.
We continued our weather unit this week. We ventured outside to observe the weather using four of our senses (sight, hearing, touch, and smell).
We learned about thermometers and how to read them. We predicted the air temperature of the classroom, a cup of water, and a cup of ice. After recording our predictions we checked to see if we were correct. We took three thermometers outside and placed them around the playground. After 15 minutes we checked the temperature of each. We discussed the difference between shady spots and sunny spots.
We discussed wind and how we measure it (wind vanes, windsocks). Students made windsocks. We then took a tour around the building, in the courtyard, and on both playgrounds looking for windy places.
