The End to Another Busy Week!
In math we have continued studying numbers! They are all around us! We have practiced using a number line and a 100’s chart. We are beginning to practice and learn strategies for remembering addition and subtraction facts.
Today we introduced science into our first grade curriculum! We are investigating properties of water and have observed some pretty cool things! Check out our class Facebook page to see pictures! So much fun!
In literacy we have been working in both large group and guided reading groups to investigate characteristics of friends and family. We are learning how our families and friends are connected to us! We have also begun our fall assessments including FAST, which is replacing DIBELS that your child took 3 times last year. We are also beginning MAPS testing which I am excited to share with you at parent-teacher conferences!!
