What a GRAND week we had in first grade! We had so much fun welcoming grandparents, aunts, uncles, special friends and more in to our classroom to join us. We loved seeing the laughter that accompanied our apple tree activity as your children painted their hands to make a beautiful creation.

In Math this week we met a new friend named “Gavin the Gator!” Students listened to a story about how Gavin loves to eat GREATER numbers. Students practiced comparing numbers using math talk such as greater than, less than, or equal to.

In phonics, we focused on digraphs ch, sh, and th. We compared the sounds, sorted, manipulated, and read stories that highlighted each. We learned secrets about what these letters do when they get together. See if your child can share the secrets with you.

We continued to delve into our Science Deep Dive on habitats and ventured to the Arctic. Students created a wonderful poster highlighting Arctic animals.
