December 17, 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

When demonstrating how to subtract the days, we now need to regroup not only a ten into the ones' place, but also a hundred into the tens' place.



Phonics: 

We missed our phonics today while we practiced for our Christmas program.

Later in the afternoon, Iron County School Board members and Iron County School District members visited our school for various meetings and presentations.  The school and the school choir performed for them.  They were impressed.


Reading Groups:

Group A:      Where's the Baby

Group B:       That Cat!

Group C:        What Joy Found        Camping


Math:

We worked on understanding the word quarters.  We have discussed the word quarters before in use with money.  Now we talked about quarters in use with telling time on the clock.   We have not started our math unit about time yet.  However, I feel it is important to begin early and spend a little time each day, over a long period of time, in order to build a good foundation of vocabulary words and understanding about how time and clocks work.  

We also continued learning how to read story problems and figure out how to solve them.


If Jan had 8 red apples and three fewer green apples than red apples, how many apples would she have?


 If George had 4 big crayons and 7 skinny crayons, how many crayons would George have?


If Sue has nine flowers, but she wants 17,  how many more flowers does she need?


Martha has 15 pieces of candy on Monday.  She gets one more piece of candy each day until Friday.  How many pieces of candy will she then have?
