Here are a few things we've been doing this week.
|We started our social studies unit, Life Long Ago, by learning about Native Americans. One classmate decided to extend the learning by building a teepee at home!|
|We learned about Christopher Columbus, and his three ships -- the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Columbus has a holiday, but some people are not Columbus fans... ask your First Grader what he or she thinks!|
|We searched books for verbs with -ed endings, which means the action already happened.|
|We played games to practice reading words with -nt, -nd, and -nk at the end.|
|We used dry rice to learn about capacity. We tried to get containers exactly "half full".|
|We learned how to double numbers, with the help of a mirror. What is double seven? Fourteen!|
Thank you to First Grade photographer, Talan, for some of these pictures!
