What's going on in First Grade This Week
This week in math students are focusing on adding and subtracting ten to a number. We are using the 120 chart tool to help find the pattern. Students should understand that the tens place changes when adding and subtracting ten, but the ones place stays the same. This process will help students to be able to later solve equations where they have to add and subtract multiples of ten. 20+10=30, 35+10=45, 45-10=35 , 20-10=10
History/Writing focus this week:
Martin's Big Words
We will be discussing the life of Martin Luther King Jr. Students will read and watch video clippings that depict Martin's struggle and courage through the Civil Rights Movement. They will learn important events in Martin's life and later create a time- line of those events.
I Have A Dream
Students will observe the "I have a dream" speech that Dr. Martin Luther King gave. We will discuss the important meaning of this speech in class. Students will then create there own "I Have A Dream" writing piece.
Martin Luther Ling Jr. Time-line
Students will read important dates and events in Martin Luther King's life. Then they will create a time-line of those events that they think should be placed on it.
