I want to welcome all first graders, parents and family to our class website! We have had a busy and fun first 2 weeks of school. We have been learning class routines and expectations. We have also been reviewing kindergarten concepts as we practice how to work in pairs and work independently. Check out some of the fun and learning we have done so far!
In math we are working on reading, writing and counting using numbers to 20. Students played a game with a partner where they would spin a spinner and write that number and the next 5 numbers. We are working on being more fluent as we count forward and backward from any number within 20. This fluency will help us as we move into addition and subtraction to 20.
The students have been learning how to choose a topic, write a topic sentence and then add at least one detail. This past week we also talked about sticking to the topic. We learned that the topic sentence is the first sentence of our story and introduces what our whole story will be about. All other sentences should tell more details about the topic.
