“We learned about plants.” – Arly
“We are making a book about an animal.” – Jerimiah
“We did our math test with counting forward and backwards.” – Khadija
“We read Little Miss Muffet.” - Sadid
This week our reading focus was on predictions and inferences. We also did a reader’s theater based on Little Miss Muffet. We worked on our fluency and expression. In writing students finished their rough draft of their animal report and started their final copy. Next week they will finish their final copy by adding illustrations. We will also start learning about how to write a book review. In math we finished unit 7 (number sense) and took our test. Next week we will start our unit on growing patterns. In science we finished up our plant unit by learning ways to classify plants. We also learned about Spring. Next week we will start our animal unit.
First grade will be going on a field trip to George Washington’s Mount Vernon on Tuesday, April 25th. More information was sent home in your child’s folder today. Please make sure to read over the information and return any necessary forms and money by April 5th.
Upcoming events: March 24- PTO Bingo; April 1- Penn Health Fair and Fun Run; April 5- Field trip permission form and money due; April 7- Teacher workday; April 10-17 – Spring Break.
