First Grade 2015-2016

Note From the Teacher

This was a great first week back after Winter Break! I hope everyone had a wonderful break and enjoyed the holidays! It seems weird to think that it is already 2016!!! This week, in Reading, we worked on finding the main topic and supporting details. In Writing, we worked on How To Writing. In Math, we worked on strategies to add double digit numbers. In Science, we learned about health and nutrition.


If you are interested in being a guest reader, please let me know! We would LOVE to have you! :-)
