The Seal Class

We have been busy in the Seal Class!  January brings a new level of excitement and learning in the first grade.  Although with as much as we have done, the highlight was finally being able to go outside!  Please send in snow pants and boots if your child wants to play on the playground and field.

This week we:

  • wrote New Year's resolutions
  • filled their book bins with fiction and nonfiction books
  • looked closely at the text features in their nonfiction books
  • read nonfiction books in a narrators voice
  • read our nonfiction books to gather new information
  • began writing nonfiction books
  • revisited important first grade reading goals such as...
  • played a doubles game to reinforce math facts of doubles
  • learned how to record data on a bar graph
