See the source image  What we are learning in First Grade!

 

ELA – We are currently working on an AUTHOR STUDY! Each month, the first grade class picks on author to explore. This month, the spotlight is on the amazing author Jan Brett! Over the next month, we will explore a variety of Jan Brett’s children’s books. We will analyze the characters (i.e, their character traits), we will practice retelling the story (beginning, middle, end), we will compare/contrast different stories, and overall work on our reading skills.

Science – In science, first grade will continue with their unit on Energy. See the source image We are now moving onto learning about LIGHT ENERGY! Over the next few weeks, the kids will explore light energy through various media and activities. The kids will read stories, watch videos, complete projects, play games, and work on other cut & glue activities, in order to learn about light energy. We will also do some fun science experiments, where we will test our knowledge of light energy! 

 

Social Studies – We just finished learning how to be a citizen. First grade will begin their next social studies chapter, which focuses on “Geography of the Community.” See the source imageOver the next few weeks, the first graders will explore the world they live in. They will learn the difference between a country, state, and city (along with learn where they live!). The kids will also explore maps and globes, where they will expand their knowledge of continents and oceans. We look forward to learning more about where we live!
