BFG- We have been enjoying reading the BFG at school. I absolutely love hearing the kids telling me they read the chapter we are on lastnight at home with their parents! That is what this book club is about. Getting to sit down with your family and enjoy a good book together. I was so excited to hear one of the boys in our class tell me he is going to watch the movie after we finish the book so he can compare them. :):):) He made me one happy teacher!!!!
Writing: We will be continuing Opinion Writing.
Math- Our focus in unit 8 is on place value using tens and ones. We have been touching on this concept in unit 7 so it should be a nice transition into unit 8.
Science- We are going to be starting our weather caterpillar so the kids can start keeping track of the weather for our weather unit. This coming Thursday is going to be a STEM challenge day. The kids are going to get to rotate to each of the first grade rooms to complete a stem challenge in each room. This will be a fun day for us all!
