We work hard in first grade. Look below to see what we cover on a daily basis!
During our Math Block we will work with many hands-on manipulatives to learn and practice new math concepts. Everyday, we will do our daily math routines during our calendar time as well as practice and review new skills through BUILD centers. Your child will work independently as well as collaboratively with other students as they discover and apply these new skills.
Although social studies will mostly be incorporated into our literacy block, we still cover a lot! Some of things we will learn this year are our community, famous women and men in history, holiday traditions and customs all over the world and much more!.
We cover a lot during our literacy block! We touch upon all aspects of literacy. Some of the thing we do include Writer's Workshop, Reading Workshop, Guided Reading, Read Alouds, and Fundations Word Study. We also incorporate Science and Social Studies topics throughout our literacy areas.
During our science time, we will conduct observations, make predictions and complete experiments. We will investigate topics using hands-on manipulatives and draw conclusions based on our findings.
