First-grade families are invited to a potluck in the RES cafeteria on Thursday, March 17th from 5:30-6:30, RES will provide plates and utensils. Please bring a dish to share! We have created this form so that we have an idea of how many people plan on attending. This is an opportunity for families to get together in a casual atmosphere We hope you can make it.
The scholars read for 120 hours at home. To celebrate this awesome achievement, we will have an extra special day tomorrow. Please allow your scholar to bring in a small stuffed friend to spend the day in our classroom.
Today, we had a Flynn Workshop, pre-teaching about our upcoming trip to the Cat in the Hat. The scholars had a chance to act with their voices and their bodies. They had a chance to see photographs of the Flynn theater and hear about some expectations during our field trip. The workshop today was so much fun. Thanks, Darcie Rankin, for setting this up for the first-grade team!
Today, first-grade scholars were focused on making combinations of 10 in the game "Make 10". Scholars worked with a partner and they took turns finding 2 cards from the game board that equaled 10. Also, during our math block, scholars accessed "xtramath" on the iPads and laptops. It was a fun, productive and engaging math block.
The first graders have been very busy measuring. Last week we measured with different units. Today, we collected data, strictly using craft sticks. After some friendly discussions, the scholars had to determine the length of the animal jumps. After that, the scholars had to organize their animal jumps from longest to shortest.
