Mrs. Franklin's Fabulous Firsties
Is it Spring Yet?
Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Aumiller were kind enough to invite our classes down to the cafe for some freeze dance Friday afternoon. We had a blast and we burned off some energy!
A Little Review
In math, we have been working hard on skip-counting by 2s, 4s, 5s, 10s and for a challenge 3s. The students are using a variety of strategies to solve problems that involve skip counting which include drawing pictures, writing number strings, using the 100s charts, and creating a T-chart. Some students have made the connection to multiplication. While we've shared this concept in class, they are not expected to write multiplication problems in first grade.
A Look Ahead
Next Friday is the JES Carnival. I hope to see you there!
