First Grade Fellows

A Peek of our Week in First Grade!

Friday Wrap-Up (March 27th)

Contractions in Action!

This week, our fellows worked with contractions. We first learned the word, "contract," by defining the word in the dictionary. Then, we learned ways to contract two words to shorten them into one word. We acted as surgeons to perform two words in surgery - cutting the words and "sewing" them together with bandages.

How Fast Can You Add?

Playing the game, Tenzi in a different way!

To freshen up our addition facts, we played the dice game, Tenzi in a bit of a different way. Students were paired up and whoever added all the dice to 12, 18, 24, 32 first won!

When do we use APOSTROPHES?

After learning about contractions, we learned how we can use apostrophes when showing possession (possessive nouns). We learned that when something belongs to someone, we use 's (apostrophe + s) on the noun to show possession.

Spring Close Reading & Crafts!

Students practiced their close reading strategies reading about the season, spring. Then, students learned facts vs. opinion.

Then, they used their knowledge of facts vs. opinion as well as practiced their "text talker" skills to write the important facts they've learned from their reading.
