First Grade

In The Classroom: January





We are beginning to learn 2 digit addition with regrouping, and the boys and girls are really catching on to this skill! The students are also hard at work mastering 100 addition facts in 5 minutes! Get out those flash cards! Remember, practice makes perfect!
Question mark or period? Students will identify if a sentence needs a question mark or a period. We are also editing sentences daily and using all the skills we have learned to be good sentence fixers. We will soon be identifying nouns.
 We are learning all about the American Revolution! This will include the thirteen colonies, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere's ride, and the Declaration of Independence. 
Thomas Edison and some of his inventions are the focus of science this week. We will also be learning about electricity safety. Our next unit of discussion is measurement!

Note from the teacher:

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who helped out with our Christmas festivities before the break! The students had an amazing time and we could not have done it without you!  Thanks again!  Please let us know anytime you wish to get involved with a holiday activity!  We would love to have you!
