This week in Writer’s Workshop…
We will be writing stories and creating books as we use the writing process. We’ve been focusing on revising (making our writing fancy) and editing (making our writing right). We will begin work on our First grade Memory Books this week.
This week in Reading Workshop…
We will be enjoying fiction stories and using the comprehension skills we’ve practiced all year!
This week in Math…
We will be focusing on numbers to 120. We will build numbers with three digits and discuss the place value of the numbers. We will also order three-digit numbers from greatest to least and least to greatest. This will be our last unit in math. We will review the skills we’ve learned during our last days together.
This week in Science…
We will continue our learning on Plants. We will examine the parts of a plant and write about their functions.
Awards and Class Party…
We will have our Class Award Ceremony, Class Party and Class Talent Show on Thursday, May 23rd (time to be announced). This is a great time to recognize everyone’s abilities and enjoy their talents! Please start thinking of a talent for your child to perform on this day. A song, magic trick, joke, dance or more! Students can perform individually or in groups.
Have a good week!
