What's been going on in First Grade?
Reading: We've continued to practice reading to ourselves. We have been working on reading (and learning from) nonfiction books.
Writing: We've been working on making sure our sentences are complete with a capital letter at the beginning, finger space between our words, and an endmark (period, question mark, or exclamation mark) to finish. We've also talked about how you should reread any sentence that you write to see if it makes sense (and fix it if it doesn't).
Handwriting: We continue to practice correct letter formation together. This week we are practicing h, b, f, l, and t.
Math: We are continuing to work on solving word problems. We are beginning to work on place value (tens and ones). Stay on the lookout for math homework on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Social Studies: We will are discussing famous American leaders.
