The Data Collectors of 1-204B!

The first graders are learning all about data and graphing.  As part of this math unit, each student created a question to ask the class.  They went around the room and gathered their data in the form of a tally chart.  Then they used the information from their tally chart to create a pictograph.  Last, they answered questions about their graphs/charts.  They had a great time surveying the class and comparing their data!

First Graders Give Their Opinions!

To launch our unit on opinions, the first grade students took on the role of taste testers!  Each student tried three different kinds of cereal and wrote down words to describe each of them on their post it.  Then, they shared their opinion as to which cereal was their favorite and why with their table.  The students tried to convince everyone that their favorite cereal was the best.  The students had a blast sharing their opinions!

First Grade Word Detectives!

Class 1-204B has been working really hard on their reading partnerships!  They have been talking about their books with their reading partners and practicing reading a page and stopping to think about what they noticed.  The students have been asking each other questions about what they read and having some interesting conversations.  They also used their “word scanners” to look closely at tricky words and try and solve them by looking for blends and digraphs, word endings, and vowel teams.  Ask us about it!

First Graders Practice their Reading Habits!

Class 1-204B celebrated the end of our reading unit by creating posters to share our good reading habits!  The students shared what they think they do really well as readers.  They’ve been practicing solving tricky words by checking the picture, looking at all the parts of the word, and thinking about what word would make sense.  We sang this song to help us remember ways we can solve tricky words!
