October 19

It was so great seeing you last week!  I loved chatting about your awesome firsties!  They came back today like no time had passed at all.  They are showing off how much they have grown and I swear that they all gained an inch or two!

The week before conferences was busy for sure.  So busy that our blog was put on the back burner.  However, I didn't want you to miss out on some of the fun we were having!  

We wrapped up our butterfly exploration by using play-doh to create their life cycle.

 Mrs. Hunt came in to do some beautiful Fall art.  It turned into a cooperative learning lesson as well as the kids had to decide what paint color to use and how to share one "brush" at their table!

 We had our first Superhero of the Week!  Miss Kaylee did a great job presenting herself!
 On Thursday we went to second grade to help out with their economics unit.  The firsties had earned money to spend at the different shops.  They were MORE THAN HAPPY to help out!!

This week we will focus on the short /e/ sound and initial blends with /l/.  Our comprehension strategy is compare and contrast.  We have also implemented a new schedule for reading groups!  The kids did remarkably well popping in and out of new groups today!

In math we will be learning to solve for unknown numbers in equations and story problems.  First grade mathematicians are ready for algebra!

Pumpkins and fire safety are our science themes for this week.  We will also spend a lot of time writing an informational text about pumpkins.

My apologies but homework will not come home until tomorrow.  I accidentally left that bag at home this morning!
