January Monthly Updates: First Grade
Welcome to first grade! Check back in each month to see what we are doing!
First graders are beginning to look at different types of poetry this month. We will be discussing the ways that we can better understand the poems we read and where poets get their ideas from. Students will also become poets themselves as we practice writing our own poems.
In math we are continuing to learn place value and skip counting. We will be learning how to group numbers into the hundreds. We will also be using estimation techniques to be able to make reasonable choices with a group of objects.
During science and social studies we will be exploring the differences of trees in the winter. We will be learning all about Jamestown and about Martin Luther King.
First graders go outside for recess any time we are able, so please remember to always send your child to school in appropriate winter weather clothing.
