January 16, 2019

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


First, we did a little practice with expanded form.

We spent a lot of time on our new math unit today.  We started by sitting on the rung and doing lots of counting patterns together with our fingers and hands.

We then did a worksheet to help us see where numbers are in relationship to each other on a hundred chart.

We also did a paper about counting patterns.  We wrote numbers counting forwards and backwards.  (Many had to learn the meaning of those two words.  Backwards is like going in the direction of our back.  Forwards is like going in the direction of our forehead.)   

The hardest part was learning how to write numbers that were larger than 100.   When the number was one hundred ten, they were writing  10010, or 1001, or 1010.  Writing the number, one hundred one, was quite a dilemma for them?  Was it 110? 111?  011?  0101? 

I tried to explain how we could use the place-value system (that we have been using each morning with our number-of the-day) to help us write new numbers.  

Reading Groups:

Group A:    Sleeping Animals

In the afternoon, the principal came in and read with them.

He then had them write about cats.
