Poem of the Week

Hunks and Chunks

In math, we generated our own questions, collected our own data, and created bar graphs and pictographs using the data we collected.  Ask you child about his/her graphing project! 



In Writing Workshop, we continued our opinion unit by writing about our opinions of who has the harder job - Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy.  Ask your first grader about his/her opinion on this! 

In Reading Workshop, we kicked off our unit on Questioning with a little pomegranate fun.  We asked questions about the pomegranate before we tasted it, while we tasted it, and after we tasted it.  Just like good readers, we asked questions BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER.
