First Grade Learning

ELA:   My Librarian is a Camel and That Book Woman
This week we...

  • looked at the captions in nonfiction to help learn more information from the text.
  • read quotes from people to learn more about how places around the word acquire books.  
  • noticed and wrote questions based on a new text read.
  • retold That Book Woman using key details from the text.
  • identified and learned a new vocabulary word from the text--mobile.  We also took our first vocabulary assessment.
  • wrote about how different countries borrow books and included details from the text and photographs.
  • checked our sentences for--a complete thought, capital letter, subject & verb and ending punctuation.
  • worked on identifying proper nouns and using correct capitalization in sentences.
  • learned about adjectives and created our own monsters and described them using different adjectives.

Phonics:
This week we...

  • worked on reading and spelling CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words.
  • used magnetic tiles to spell CVC words.
  • identified trick words in sentences.
  • wrote dictated sentences that contain trick words and CVC words.
  • Trick words--a, and, the, his, is and of.  These are words kids will be expected to read and spell.

Math: 1.16-1.20
This week we...

  • worked on counting on to find the missing numbers in problems like 5 + __ = 7
  • learned the meaning of the = sign and used that to create true number sentences, ex: 3 + 4 = 5 + 2.
  • identified correct true number sentences.
  • changed one number to correct false true number sentences.
  • learned about the commutative  property-- 5 + 2 = 7 and 2 + 5 = 7.
  • used the commutative property to write all 4 addition number sentences associated with a number bond.  For example: 5 + 2 = 7, 2 + 5 = 7. 7 = 5 + 2, 7 = 2 + 5.
  • worked on sprints ( 60 seconds) to strengthen our addition facts to 10.
  • used number bond dashes to master the ways to add to 7.

Science:  Day Patterns

  • We started our first science inquiry with shadows.  We conducted an experiment with flashlights and gnomes to see if you can make a statue's shadow move.
  • We read an interactive story about how your shadow moves even when you are not looking.
