What's New in B2?
How Families Can Help:
Week One: We will be discussing different points of view and focusing on a map point of view. I will send home a guide sheet to work on with your children
Week Two: We will focus on Map Symbols. I will send home a neighborhood map that I would like you to help your children create a key for.
Week Three: This week we will be learning about distance. Distance is important when learning about maps, but it is also a very tricky concept for first graders to understand, which is why your involvement in the learning of this topic is necessary! To help, I will send home an activity that you can do with your family that will help reinforce some key concepts we will learn in class.
Week Four: Our last topic of this unit is location. We will be practicing describing the location of objects and places using words such as in front, behind, left, right, above and below. To help your children out with this, you can practice these terms at home throughout the unit. Hide an object, describe where it is, see if your child can find it and vice versa.
