First Grade Learning

Reading: 
This week during Reader's Workshop we...

  • stopped and made predictions while reading.
  • talked about visualizing while reading.
  • practiced using strategies for figuring out the meaning of new words.
  • discussed how pictures help us understand what we are reading.
  • reviewed the reading strategies we've learned for solving an unknown word.:

Sight Words: away, back, I'm, after, than

Math:
This week we worked on solving number stories with a picture, number bond, number sentence, and filling in a statement.  We solved for a total or a missing part in a number story.  Ex:  6 + 4 = ? or 6 + ? =10.  When solving for a missing part we worked on counting on to find the missing part.

Writing:
During our weekend writing time we explicitly work on using appropriate punctuation and capitalization.  We also reinforce this during handwriting.

Social Studies:
We started our unit on choices and our community.  We came up with questions to guide our learning this week based on visuals.  We also read about a variety of community helpers.
