2D to 3D

What better way to learn, than to build!  We spent the afternoon cutting 2D shapes and making them into 3D solid shapes!  It was great fun to spread out in the cafeteria and share the learning with Ms. Clark’s Class!

What if?

This week we have been learning about a few Great Americans. Today we thought about what would happen to us (personal connection) if they had not made their contribution to America! Here are a few thoughts about what we thought would happen if Abe Lincoln, George Washington, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell had not ever lived. Stay tuned as we turn this into a CHATTER PIC next week!

Do you know the best way to tell b from d? We do! Today we worked on using a little rhyme to help us remember. This is a great thing to help you at home as students are writing at home. Thanks Hannah and Zoe for being the models to teach us.

Problem solving is no PROBLEM!

Here is a sample of how we are asking students to solve word problems. When they use these steps, the student can use the mathematical operation that works best for them! Hope you find it helpful.

Welcome to the Christmas Museum!

Yesterday we shared our Christmas Museum with all the other classes. Each group researched and then wrote facts from their Non-fiction reading. Later we created exhibits that shared the information we learned. During the Holiday rotations, all of the 1st graders got to learn from our learning! I think we may have some museum curators in the making!

cold and a WHITE OUT!

What a day...Frosty sent cold weather but not a WHITE OUT (I think he got a little confused and sent it early last Friday)! We started the day with a special note from Frosty himself. Ms. Snyder delivered the cold mail! We cut snowflakes and wrote about why we are special (just like a snowflake). We made sugar cube castles and made snow. The day was topped off with a special viewing of Frosty the Snowman. So much fun!
