Peek at the Week

Mrs. Bennett's First Grade News, Week 8 (October 10-14

A Note From the Teacher

I really do have one of the best jobs in the world! This week we have completed science experiments each day on one of the five senses. We concluded today with taste! Ask your child to tell you about all of the different experiments we have conducted this week. Next week, we will focus on all the tools a scientist uses. We will be learning about the short u sound and the qu sound. Q and U will 'get married' next Friday since q can never be without u.:) We will focus on story structure, using an editing checklist, adjectives, antonyms, and understanding tens and ones to 50. Students will learn to recite numbers forward and backward from any given number.
