The first graders learned how to research a topic using books, MyOn and Pebble Go. They have picked a safety topic, so on Monday they will start researching on their topic independently. I can't wait to read their informational texts on safety.
We learned facts about Christopher Columbus, Fall and pumpkins. They took notes on notecards and then wrote complete sentences on a fact sheet. I was very proud of how hard they worked. They did a lot of writing!
The first graders did a length activity in math this week. They had to work together to compare lengths of different objects. There will be math homework Monday -Thursday this week.
The first graders have been learning about paying attention at school in Guidance. They use the word PAL to help them remember how to pay attention. P-pay attention, A-always work hard, L-listen carefully. This can also be used at home. :) There is a song that Mrs. Skahill sings with the students. Please click on the video below to hear some of the song. Warning: It will get stuck in your head!!!
