Happy Spring! First graders continue to work very hard and grow as learners! In Reader’s Workshop, we’ll learn ways to get to know the characters in our books better. In Writer’s Workshop, we’ll be learning to write poetry and songs. In Math, we’ll continue telling time to the hour/half-hour as well as partitioning shapes. By the end of April, we’ll start Unit 7 focusing on addition and subtraction within 100. Of course, we will continue learning strategies to strengthen our fact fluency work as well. In science, we’ll continue learning from nature through our senses focusing on animal and plant structures.
