More Math

We have had a great time practicing all that we are learning in math! Here are some quick pictures of us hard at work! (sorry some of them are blurry - we are busy!!!)


Math & Nature Walk

We have started working on understanding tens and ones. A much harder task than some might think. We've been working with partners to make and count numbers with our tens and ones pieces. Hopefully we can grasp this concept before we begin to put it on paper.

We also took a nature walk today after recess. We love to look at the interesting things that are along the trails, collect pine cones, look for footprints, and see how nature changes as a result of the changing seasons. Here we are at the end of our walk.

Halloween 2011

Ah yes. Before I forget... we had a great selection of book characters for Halloween this year...

I took about 8 pictures trying to get a good one with everyone. But someone is always laughing, talking, moving, or anything else that might end in -ing... so this is about the best we could do.

I think we may still be on a sugar high...

Week of: March 21

We are back from spring break and I hope you all had a fantastic time. Our class has many things to learn in the upcoming weeks... please remember to help your child read each evening. This will help us greatly in the classroom.
Spelling Words this week are:
1. called
2. just
3. where
4. most
5. know
6. ouch
7. cow
8. brown
9. count
10. south
Please remember to practice them daily for our test on Friday. Also, please remember to practice your list of first grade sight words that are in your notebook. I will be testing students over their words this week so that we can begin to move to the next list.
