November 20, 2013

See what we're learning.
Talk and share with your child about the day.
Review and give extra help and practice if needed.

Today in First Grade


We practiced simple words that had one and two ending consonants.

Reading Groups:

Group A:          Pond       Tadpoles and Frogs

Group B:          The Tree           Taking Pictures

Group C:          Who is the Tallest       Gymnastics


Two examples:  1- Counting up to 10 and then adding the extras.
2- Subtracting from 10 and then adding the extra.

We are still working on the idea that you can subtract from a larger number by counting up from that number to make the nearest 10 and then adding the rest of the number.  If you are doing 17 - 8, then you need to think of the 17 as being 10 and 7.  The 8 that you are taking away needs 2 to make the 10.  And then there are seven more ones.  So 2 and 7 make 9.  So 17 - 8 = 9.

We had an assembly after lunch that was about responsibility and being responsible.

It was also early out.
