Today we took two of our high frequency words (I, like) and created sentences. Mrs. Kierstead and I were so impressed with what your children wrote. We had sentences about the animals, friends, and siblings. Writing is such a magical time in the classroom….we are off to a great start.
We used the number line to count and compare numbers today. Counting by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s was fun, especially when we counted along to a Jack Hartmann song.
Mrs. Dana came in today for Social Thinking. Last year we learned about whole body listening, following the group plan, being part of the group, thought bubbles, and that our eyes are like arrows. This year the program continues with us learning about hidden rules and expected and unexpected behaviors.
Our last exciting moment of the day was visiting Mrs. Charles. We will be heading to our school library each Monday afternoon. Because we are in First Grade, each child is able to check out a book and bring it back to the classroom. Within a few weeks, these books will be able to go home to share with you.
Another great day in First Grade.
