I hope you had an amazing and relaxing Spring Break! It's hard to believe there is only 6 weeks of school left.
Every Child Plays-
Last week, Tiffany Marshall came in to our class to answer a few questions about the playground for our class and we gave her $637.36 from Arrowhead students and families, a banner that said, "we support you" and signed by students at Arrowhead. What I expected to be a brief 5 minute conversation turned in 20-25 minutes and left many first graders making many personal connections that will last them a life time. If you have time, please take a look. Way to go Arrowhead!
This week in Wonders, spelling words focus on or, ore, oar. We are having a spelling test on Friday. Our comprehension skills are making connections within text and finding problems and identifying the solutions during reading groups.
In GoMath, we will continue learning how to read and record data from picture, bar graph and tally mark graphs. Each day the kids come in and we create our own graphs using a question of the day. They take their name tag and place it above an answer and we discuss our finding.
