First Grade Class

Welcome to Week 15. I cannot believe that we have made it through the first half of the school year. To say I am proud of our first graders is an understatement. Lets dive into week 15. Enjoy!

In Math/EMAT, students expanded on their knowledge of “centimeters/cm” as they measured objects in their desks such as their workbook, pencils, markers, scissors etc.

Students have read four books during the first half of the 2020-2021 school year. This week, they chose their favorite of the four and completed a book report.

For Geography/History, students worked in groups of two on an interactive USA trivia game. This game helped them review information they have been acquiring about the United States of America.
