First Grade News April 29, 2016
What have we been up to this week?
- In reading. we reviewed characters, setting, and plot. We also worked on using context clues to find the meaning of an unknown word.
- In writing, we reviewed all pronouns, and completed some grammar reviews on Moby Max. We also practiced writing observations and inferences in response to a picture prompt! This skill will be very helpful when transferred to texts later in your child's education.
(Remember that I do not have all of my homeroom kids in math.
Be sure to ask your child what he/she is doing in math class!)
This week, Mrs. Bodart's class challenged us! On Monday morning, they arrived in our classroom to announce that they would like to see which class could earn more Dojo points in a week! It was a VERY close competition most of the week! At the time of publication, Mrs. Bodart's class was ahead by one point!
Above: A photo we sent to Mrs. Bodart's class via Twitter to let them know that we were winning one afternoon!
Above: The students used story spinners to discuss the characters, setting, and plot of a story that we read together.
