We are looking forward to many fun activities this month. We had Science Joe visit us a few weeks ago.The children enjoyed learning about solids and liquids. We will continue studying solids and liquids in February and we will begin science camp. The children will be in groups visiting different first grade classes for science lessons.The children always enjoy science camp and working with different teachers.
First graders are working on retelling orally and they are using wondering to help understand fiction and narrative nonfiction stories. We are also continuing with our vocabulary program. Ask your children about some of our new vocabulary words.You will be amazed at the difficult words they can recall!
In Math, we are working on telling time to the quarter hour. Please work on this at home with your child. We will be working on place value: tens and ones, greater than, less than and equal to and addition facts. The children are enjoying playing the math games online. Don't forget to play the games at home for extra practice.
We are looking forward to the wintercarnival! Thanks for all of your support at home!
