We are very busy first grader
s!  Here is what we're working on:

In Reading, we are learning about the difference between fiction, nonfiction and poetry.  In this unit, we are exploring the features of each genre and using the features to gather information.  We are also reading across genres to grow our knowledge about a topic. 

In Writing Workshop, we are moving from using craft strategies in our small moment stories to writing All About Books.  We will be writing to teach our readers all about a topic that we know a lot about.  In addition, we will use different text features to help our readers learn more. 
In unit 7 of Math, we will explore the relationship between addition and subtraction, compare different subtraction strategies, and continue to work on fact fluency.  Also, we will explore the defining and nondefining attributes of 2-dimensional shapes.  In addition, we will continue working on telling time to the nearest hour, using analog and digital clocks. 
In Social Studies, we are learning about how people have needs and wants.  In addition, we are learning what goods and services are and how they satisfy needs and wants.  
In Family Life, we are getting to know our classmates and peers by sharing All About Me projects.  We will learn the importance of families and how they influence who we are.
