We had another great day in our first grade classroom! Congratulations to all of our students (and to all of you parents) for having a successful first week of school!
Today we learned the first song in our Core Knowledge book: "Make new Friends (but keep the old)". We read a book calledRibbit! by Rodrigo Folgueira, and we talked about ways that we can make new friends. Our class has done a super job of being kind and inclusive so far!
Today we mixed primary colors to make the secondary colors: orange, purple, green. We also began our geography unit. We learned about a globe, and looked at the continents and oceans on our globe. We played a game of four corners and answered some questions to review these new ideas. I will attach a pdf copy of the scope and sequence of the Core Knowledge topics that we will be covering in first grade this year.
Our first grade team met together today to evaluate the math and language arts assessments, and we have placed our first grade students into the most fitting leveled classes. We will begin language arts and math classes next week, and you will be hearing from Ms. East, Ms. Skinner, or myself to let you know what will be happening in our respective classes.
We're off to a great start! Thank you so much for all of your support.
Have a great weekend!
