The first graders are continuing to work hard! In readers and writers workshop we have been diving into nonfiction. We are learning about the world by reading nonfiction books and exploring topics we love like animals, weather, and famous people! We have also been writing about things we love by creating All About books. Some of our topics include: dogs, Minecraft, and hoverboards.
In math, we are learning about SO many new and important topics. Place value is a main focus as we think about tens and ones and use this information to explore patterns, compare numbers and become more familiar with our number grids. We have also been working on finding the difference between 2 numbers and have started working on money by introducing pennies and dimes.
It is hard to believe we are passing the halfway point!
