It has been a very busy week in the first the first grade this week. Mathematicians created jack-o-lantern glyphs and analyzed them as a group to make quantitative and comparative statements. Glyphs are special pictures used to share information. Ask your child to tell you about his or her glyph using the included key.
This week, we spent time on the Cabot Common observing all we saw. We categorized our observations into moving/not moving & living/non-living. We used our records and a big collection of found objects to begin creating a model of Cabot Village in our classroom. We learned a great song called “The Sun, It Rises in the East” and turned our bodies into compasses using what we know about where the sun rises to find north, south, east and west. Ask your child to tell you what he or is building to add to our village.
During word work, we worked with digraphs. First graders are experts at finding digraphs - ch, th, sh, wh, & ck- everywhere. Ask your child to spot digraphs as you go about your travels this weekend.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mo Willem and the pigeon from Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the bus! help us learn to use text bubbles in our writing.
