March 27, 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

Today we had a presentation from the Clark Planetarium. 

He used a lot of liquid hydrogen and blow torches to talk about molecules and states of matter --  liquid, solid, gas.

And we got to hold a real meteorite.

Reading Groups:

Group A:    Two Snakes     The Fox and the Snail

Group B:    Rainforest Plants      Sebastian's New Sister

Group C:    My Shells       Predators


We used both the hour hand and the minute hand to tell time to the hour and to the half hour.  We also did some small story problems figuring out what time something would be if you started at one time and ended a certain number of hours or half-hours later.

After lunch we read books, did a word play, and did a spelling test.

We also spent some time working on the parts of the math that the children had troubles with this morning.  It is so hard for them to tell which hand is which and whether the hands are in front of the numbers or past them.
