First Grade is using our new skills.
April means using our skills in First Grade.
In Open Court Reading we have shifted our focus from decoding to comprehension. Our Ninth Unit “Being Afraid” will contain many interesting poems and stories, biography and art, all helping us to use our new skills as we explore literature related to the things that frighten us.
In Math we are expanding our counting skills as well as learning our last sets of Math facts. Our lessons will also include telling time, coin counting, even and odd numbers, fractions, patterning, geometry, measurement, calendar, and mathematical reasoning.
We continue using D’Nealian Handwriting in First grade. The smooth and curving strokes will help us to prepare for cursive writing in second grade.
In Social Studies we are learning about wants and needs, jobs and money.
In Science we have finished our unit on food chains and will be beginning our unit on Matter.
We will enjoy going to Music, Art, Spanish,Computer and P.E. for more learning fun!
We are so excited to be in First grade!
