First Grade Learning

Reading Workshop:
This week we worked on learning the structures of our reading workshop with our first Module.  We used Wild About Books and Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook to help us investigate how reading helps us learn and how reading can be fun.  

We worked on turning and talking to share our ideas with partners.  We worked on answering and asking questions about text.  We used the words and illustrations to provide evidence and support our thinking.  We used a knowledge journal to record the knowledge we've gained through reading our texts this week.

After our whole group lesson, students transition to independent reading.  We our working on building our stamina to work on reading independently for a longer periods of time.  The students are enjoying shopping for books to spend time reading during independent reading.

We've worked in our reading response journals this week to write about what we are reading.  We've used sentence frames to help us start our responses.

Math: Lessons 1.1-1.2
We started our math routines this week.  We did a number bond dash (90 seconds) to help us work on combinations of 5.  We looked for 5 groups in groups of objects to help us count on from 5.  We used number bonds to break apart groups of dots and find combinations of numbers.  

We've worked on learning the sound/word cues for the letters t, b, f, m, n, o, i, u, and c.  We've worked on echoing the sound cues with picture clues and with just letter clues.  We've also worked on forming the lowercase letters correctly.

Social Studies:
This week we focused on relationships in the classroom.  We read Chrysanthemum and discussed how it is hard to take harsh words back.  We read Have you Filled a Bucket Today? and brainstormed ways we can fill each others buckets at school.
