December 4, 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

I regret that I did not take a picture of the three-foot snowdrift that last night's windy snowstorm left in front of our classroom's outside door.   The kids liked standing at our glass door and watching the janitor use a small tractor to move it away.

Phonics: 



Today we learned that when a vowel has no consonants guarding it, the vowel will say its long sound (its own name.)

Reading Groups:



Group A:      I Need to Clean My Room

Group B:      Looking for Fang

Group C:      A Habitat is Where We Live     Collecting Things is Fun!


Math:


We might need to find a missing number in any place of an equations.



By moving the numbers around, we can make two addition equations and two subtraction equations which are related to each other.  All four of them make a fact family. 


When solving a story problem, we must be able to find important information and figure out how to use it in order to figure out the missing part.  A very good diagram to use is a simple one that shows the whole part and then the two parts that would make the whole part.  (below)



Because today was early-out-Wednesday, we used the last half-hour to read some stories together as a class.  We read:


 And:

Early-out!  The kids were very excited to go home and play in the snow!
