*Updated Weekly throughout the school year.
[Math Week of September 9-13] This week we began subtraction 1-10. We worked through a few lessons in addition to hands-on learning with counting cubes. This week we also started math centers and small group math. The students were excited to receive regular computer time during math centers.
The Chapter 2 Math Test is scheduled for Tuesday, Spetember 24th.
Homework will be sent home on Thursday, September 19th and is due on the 24th
[Science Week of September 9-13] We just began our uint on Animals. This unit is wonderful because it integrates all subject areas including religion, through Noah's Ark. For the first half of the week in science, we reviewed living and non-living things. The students really impressed me with their knowledge of this! Students brought a stuffed animal of their favorite animal and presented them in a show-and-tell format. I was also very impressed with the facts the students presented. Some students even researched their animal. Great job, first grade!
[Religion Week of September 9-13] This was an wonderful week studying Noah's Ark. We began by watching a video of Noah's Ark. The videos are from Beginner's Bible and can be found on YouTube: Noah's Ark. We crafted a rainbow and a dove and discussed the significants of them in the story. We read directly from the Bible and read picture books of Noah's Ark (Genesis 6:9 - 9:17) We also dressed as animals and walked the school 2-by-2. I posted cute pictures above. :)
Current Memory Verse: "Every word of God proves true" - Proverbs 30:5. We will study the Bible.
