Miss Culver's First Grade News

December 4, 2015


Math: This week we finished our subtraction unit. We drew pictures and wrote subtraction sentences and practiced our subtraction facts. Next week we will begin Topic 7: Counting and Number Patterns to 120.

Reader's Workshop: This week we began our character unit. We looked for clues in our books about our character's feelings. We have also began learning about reading like a "movie star". We can do this by making faces and gestures the character makes.

Writer's Workshop: This week we began our second narrative unit: Authors as Mentors. We began looking at Kevin Henkes and how he develops his characters and puts them in all of his books.

Science: We wrapped up our weather unit this week with a test! Next week we will begin Force & Motion.


We spent our specials time using Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind! We had a practice for the Holiday Extravaganza (hence having an "A" day again on Monday). The students received a 4.0 for their AMAZING behavior & work ethic! I'm so proud of them and know their practice will pay off tomorrow. Hope to see you there!
