The first graders learned about fact families this week. They found out that the 2 subtraction facts in a fact family were a little more challenging to come up with than the 2 addition facts. They've already learned turn around facts, so that was helpful when it came to the addition facts. Ask your child what the fact family would be using these three numbers 2, 3, 5.
The class wrote opinion papers on their favorite candy. They had to pick between a lollipop or chocolate and come up with 3 reasons for why it was their favorite.
We are continuing to talk about adjectives. The students had fun coming up with adjectives for their lollipop and chocolate opinion papers.
