Today in First Grade
Today we talked about contractions that use the word "not." In our class, we describe a contraction like this: A contraction is two words that are squeezed together so that a letter or letters pop out. And there is a pop-out sign that shows where it popped out. We call this pop-out sign an apostrophe. When two words are put together into a contraction, the first word is always the same (there is only one exception--won't) and a letter or letters pop out of the second word.
Group A: Run, Rabbit, Run!
Group B: What Color is the Sky? On a Map
Group C: The Hungry Farmer Sharks Mrs. Tucks Little Tune
We practiced a little more of taking a number apart to add some of it to the other number to make a ten, and then add the ten to the left over part of the first number.
After lunch we read two stories together. We enjoyed them both very much!
