March 20, 2014

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 are singing The Star Spangled Banner each morning for our song this month.  Today we had a lesson about the meaning of the words in the song, what the song is talking about, and what was happening in history at that time.



We also watched a short animated movie about the song.



Phonics:

Yesterday we learned the sounds of ou and ow when they sound the same.  Today we added the other ow sound, when it makes the long o sound with the w.

Reading Groups:

Group A:     Mapping North America

Group B:     Who's That Knocking at My Door?

Group C:     How to Draw a Dinosaur        The Loudest Sneeze


Math:

We learned more about longer and shorter.  We learned how to measure things.





After lunch we read books, did a word play, and practiced our spelling words.



We spent the rest of our afternoon writing about spring, since this is the first day of spring.  
Here are things we brainstormed for ideas and words they might want to use.
