1G Weekly News


Notes and Updates

Hi parents,

I hope everyone had a wonderful 3-day weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving. We had so much fun celebrating with the students and making Stone Soup. We also enjoyed expressing what we were thankful for on Kidpix.

In reading last week, students explored character traits and learned the difference between inside and outside traits. They even got to do a reading web to describe each trait they learned their character had as they read their books. We also had a fun time on Wednesday reading in the garden and enjoying the cooler weather.

In writing, students continued to work on their illustrations focusing on word choice of nouns, adjectives, and verbs. They also worked on adding colors and outlining to make their illustrations pop.

In math, students learned about subtraction and the minus sign. We played many subtraction games and started to solve subtraction word problems.

In science, students had a lot of fun going to the lab and exploring soil. Now the students can tell you that soil is made of different types of rocks and humus. They also thought it was cool to see the soil separate in water because it made the water turn yellow.

Please make sure to visit my blog, http://skeane1g.blogspot.com for some lovely pictures of all the student's fun learning.
