A Peek at Next Week:

Social Studies: We will be looking at how to measure time, both with calendars and clocks, and will also be discussing the past, present and future. We will be exploring timelines together, which will be helpful for when we study various American heroes' lives over the year. Students will be completing a timeline project that will be due on October 9th.
Science: We will be discussing the design process and exploring how we can figure out how to create technologies that help to solve problems.
Character Education: This week we began our Character Education program called Second Step at FSAPS. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings, we will be focusing on a variety of Character Education topics throughout the year. We will be utilizing the Second Step curriculum and supplementing with our own activities and resources to help your students grow as individuals. The first important topics we are focusing in first grade is how following listening rules helps everyone learn. This past week, students learned the different positions their body can be in to help them learn: Body Still, Voice Quiet, Eyes Watching, Ears Listening. We played some games to help us practice being good listeners. This upcoming week we will be learning how to focus our attention.
