Week of Oct. 23-26

Our first graders have been receiving top secret reading missions from the Super Secret Detective Agency. They have learned to notice problems in their reading so they can stop to solve the problems. They are looking carefully at all the parts of the word and doing a s-l-o-w check to make sure they got it right.

In math, we measured the length of objects with non-standard units, such as blocks or chain links.

In science, we learned about silt, which is made of pieces of rock even smaller than sand. We found out that clay is even smaller than silt!

In writing, we have started "How-To" pieces. We had a chance to put our knowledge of how-to writing into action when we followed instructions on how to make slime.
