Measuring Machines

The first graders did a lot of measuring this week in math.  They measured a variety of objects with their feet, fingers, and hands.  The class decided that using their body was not an accurate way of measuring, but they had a lot of fun doing it!  

They also used cubes and a paper foot to measure items around the room.  They learned how to measure things correctly with a ruler.  

We talked about nouns some more this week.  We read the book, Chicken in the City.  It is a great book to use when learning about people, places, and things.  

  • There will not be any spelling this week.
  • There will be math homework, so please check your child's folder each night.  
  • Thanks to those that participated in the Spelling Challenge.  The class did an awesome job on the test.  
  • There will be an early dismissal at 1:3o on Wednesday.
  • Your child will be bringing home the December reading/snack calendar on Wednesday.  Please continue to read and fill out the calendar.  The November calendars will be due on December 2nd.  
  • Please look at Infinite Campus by the end of next week.  I have updated math and some of the literacy standards.  I will be assessing the kids this week on a couple more, so please look to see how your child is doing.  Please let me know if you have any questions and especially if you are not seeing anything.  M - meets, Ap - approaching, Be- below
