Welcome to 1st Grade!

First graders rock on!  Our students continue to study the history of the earth. During this unit, students have learned about the different layers of the earth, what geologists and paleontologists do and how rocks and minerals are in everyday objects.  

During our writing workshop, our students are immersed in a personal narrative unit of study.  Students have been identifying the elements of personal narrative, and are beginning to use those same elements to write their own stories.  Some of our mentor texts include, Fireflies, Shortcut, Big Mama, and many other wonderful examples.  We are all really excited about the writing process!

Our students will conclude our current math unit with renaming ten as a unit: a ten.  Children will work on solving addition and subtraction problems decomposing and composing teen numbers as 1 ten and some ones.
