It was a week of getting back into the grove of first grade. We reviewed expectations after being out of school for Spring Break. We would like to welcome Anika to our classroom!
During our language arts block we have been doing centers and guided reading. This week we read picture books and practiced retelling stories. The students will practice retelling with partners next week. Please make sure the students are reading at home. Raz-Kids is a great way to practice reading in addition to the guided reading books that are sent home.
This week in math we learned about fractions of a set. The kids are doing a great job understanding this objective. Next week we will continue learning about fractions and begin discussing fair shares.
We started learning about a new unit in Science on plants. We discussed plant needs and the parts of a plant. Next week will continue learning about plants with a focus on the plant life cycle. We have some fun projects planned for this unit!
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
