Today we looked at different flowers and observed them using our senses! Observing the flowers carefully we did the following: used a ruler to measure it, wrote a careful description of the flower, made connections using our senses, and then the best part was writing a poem about the flower using descriptions related to our senses. Tomorrow we will craft our very own poems!
Today we were introduced to things that come in twos! We learned a new vocab word called pairs! We were able to brainstorm so many things that come in pairs! We also had a class discussion about our quick images with a focus on the strategies we used to solve how many were altogether. In our math stations we were able to solve a word problem about how many hands are in a group of 8 children!
This week we have been practicing reading for a purpose in our reading
Wow what a writing day we had! We have been learning how to review our own pieces using a careful reading eye. We have been adding more writing details about our opinions about our favorite collections! Take a look at us!
This week we have been putting forth our best efforts in our newest math station! With our partners we have been taking turns rolling a dice and continuing to add on. We have been working on counting on from the last number and continuing to add more to our 10-frames! We have been counting and adding on all the way up to 60! It's been a lot of fun!
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
