1st Grade

What are we Learning in First Grade?

Reading: We are working to self-monitor as we read by making sure the words look right, sound right, and make sense as we say them.  We are practicing strategies we already know, and learning new strategies to help us when there is a word that we don't know.  Further, we are working to better comprehend our texts while reading with smooth voices to make it sound like we are talking.

Writing: We are learning how to write our opinions by sorting, explaining, and persuading our readers.

Math: Math is all about place value!  We are building numbers with base ten blocks, and comparing them with math symbols.  We are learning to show our numbers in different ways by drawing pictures, writing our numbers in expanded form, and by using ten frames.
