We have been learning so much this month! It is crazy to think that in 5 1/2 weeks this awesome group of kiddos will be second graders!
The kids have loved learning to tell time to the hour and half hour. Last Friday we practiced using Twizzlers!! Yum! I have also been extending them past the standard to try to tell me time to the quarter hours and also how many more minutes until a certain time. We are currently learning geometry with 2D and 3D shapes and their attributes. Today we will begin learning about measurement. Next week we will have our Unit 7 assessment.
For the next several weeks we will be studying habitats to prepare us for our zoo trip on May 14th. Last week the kids studied the polar habitats. They learned about the adaptations plants and animals have that allow them survive the harsh climate. In the pictures below they are creating an the earth, labeling the Arctic Circle and Antarctica, and sorting the animals that live in each.
The first grade team is putting together a summary of important dates for the end of the year. Keep your eyes open for that helpful note!
