Ms. C.'s First Grade Classroom

December 7 - December 11

This Week:

In Reading/LA, we reviewed all short vowel sounds, sight words, r-blends, l-blends and double consonant sounds. We read stories about snowmen and then finished the week with the Gingerbread Man. Students enjoyed completing Gingerbread Man themed activities and even wrote a story about how they would catch the Gingerbread Man. We practiced reading comprehension strategies and practiced ABC order.


In Writing, we continued discussing Friendly Letters. We reviewed letter parts and students began thinking of ideas for letters. One of our fifth grade classes will be coming in next week to help students write a Friendly Letter.


In Math, we finished up Unit 3 and reviewed all week. Students continue to practice solving addition and subtraction facts to 10 and solving addition and subtraction word problems.


In Science, students learned about Energy and the three different sources of energy, Heat, Light and Sound. Students were amazed to find out how electricity works and how we can create our own heat.
