May 6, 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


Phonics:


Today we split both three and four syllable words.

Reading Groups:

Group A:     Walking Up Walls

Group B:     Green       Art

Group C:     My Pet Lamb      Let's Make Pancakes




Math:

Today we practiced cutting specific geometric shapes into smaller, similar, shapes.  We are using triangles, rectangles, squares (which is also a rectangle), rhombuses, and trapezoids.


Then we cut geometric shapes into dissimilar shapes.



After lunch we did a word play, finished more math, wrote sentences, and watched a movie about motion and how shapes and objects move.  It went right along with our geometry because it talked about and compared 3-D shapes like rectangular prisms, spheres, cones,  blocks, and showed how they move.

Since it is the end of the year, we have started beginning and ending each day by watching a video performed by The Piano Guys.  They are entertaining to the children and it give the children an experience with quality, beautify music
