Lots of Learning fun in First Grade
The children will begin our second reading book next week.
We have been busy this week working on homophones.The class broke
up into groups of 3 or 4 to work on all different homophones.
It was great working in teams and helping each other.
Our focus over the next several weeks will be
writing our own personal narratives.
We had loads of fun making
huge snowmen in the makerspace. We wrote stories
on how our snowmen came alive!
We will be concentrating on reading and
making tally charts, reading picture graphs and
reading and interpreting bar graphs.
It has been fun learning all about St. Joseph.
He was a great father and he is a great role model
for all dads. Jesus loved to work in the carpenter shop.
He always listened and obeyed his father
and mother. We are charting ways in which we can
be better sons and daughters at home.
We have been busy, busy, busy! Our science
unit on sound and
light has been very exciting!
We made kazoos and paraded through the school
with our kazoo band. We had a telephone cup
experiment to find out how sound traveled from one cup to another.
We also used a tuning fork to hit the side of a bowl of water.
In all of these experiments we discussed how vibrations are all a big part of sound!Specials:
