Lamaster's Line up

Here's what is happening in first grade...

This Week...

This week, we identified life lessons that we can learn from the books we are reading. During writer's workshop, we edited our sloppy copy of our Young Author's book and some of the students began writing the final copy of their book. In math, we reviewed telling time and also practiced deciding which is the minute hand and which is the hour hand. Next week, we will again review various math concepts such as number models and probability.

Math Homelinks for next week...

We have finished all the lessons in our math book, so I am spending the last few weeks reviewing and diving into some harder concepts. Feel free to complete any homelinks that we skipped in the math homelinks book.

Mystery Readers

Here is our Mystery Reader schedule for October/November. If you signed up to be a Mystery Reader, you will need to complete a limited criminal history check on the ZCS website. Our Mystery Reader time is from 9:45-10:00am. You can bring a book from home that your child loves, but please don't tell your child if you are the Mystery Reader! This should be a surprise to even your child!
