Spring Time: Reading Bosses and Poetry!

Our First Graders are kicking off all new units in Reading, and Writing!

In Reading, our students are exploring strategies to become Reading Bosses! They will be using all their reading strategies to take charge our their reading! Catch a student solving a tricky word by asking themselves, “Does it look right?”, “Does sound right?”, and “Does that make sense?”.

In Writing, our First graders are starting their Poetry unit! The students will be using their 5 senses, shapes, repetition, comparisons, and songs to write their own poetry. Check out some of the poetry notebooks students have decorated for inspiration!

 

Word Builders!

Our First Grade students have become word builders! The students are focusing on creating words by using a beginning, middle, and end.

The students are using consonants, blends, and digraphs for the beginning sound. They are using vowel teams (ee, ea, ai, oa) for the middle sound, and common endings such as -ing, -er, and -s for the ending sound.

After the students have built a word working with their partners, they practice breaking apart the sounds of the words too!
