Reading Workshop: With the help of our Beanie Baby friends, we are learning print strategies to figure out tricky words. Eagle Eye, Lips the Fish, Stretchy Snake, Chunky Monkey, Tryin' Lion, Flippy Dolphin, and Careful Kangaroo make learning these strategies extra fun!
Writing Workshop: Your first grader is learning to write a Small Moment story with a beginning, middle, and end. The stories are about things that really happened in his/her life.
Math: The students are doing a great job with our math Workshop model. They have partners and have learned to be FROGS when working with others ~ F is for Fair and Friendly; R is for Rotate turns; O is for Organize and clean up; and G is for Get right to work!
We are in Unit 1 and we are working on using 10-frames, number bonds, number lines to help with addition and subtraction to 10.
Fundations: We are in Unit 3 and working on digraphs (wh, th, sh, ch, and ck) and new trick words.
Social Studies: We are busy learning how to keep safe this month - Fire safety, Halloween safety, and how rules keep us safe.
