As you are already aware, the school will be closed for the next two weeks. I have emailed instructions on the Homework and Class Assignments given in your child's homework folders. I will be sending an email next week, sharing the Grade 1 Google Classroom where more class assignments will be uploaded for the rest of the two weeks.
This week, we had another parent come to our class to share a special celebration. Mrs. Kohberg, Ella's mother, talked to the first graders about a Danish celebration, Fastelavn where children hit a barrel filled with candy while dressed in costumes (similar to Halloween). We even learned a special song about eating buns. A BIG THANK YOU to Mrs. Kohberg for teaching us and bring in the yummy buns!
We started tuning into our Unit about solar systems. The students had so many wonderings...
- How many planets are there?
- Why is it dark in some parts of the Earth?
- How heavy is the sun?
- Can people go to the moon?
... and so many more!
We will investigate and find out all the answers 😀.
The first graders are learning about metric measurements in Math. How long is it from your wrist to your elbow? From your knee to your foot? The width of the table?
In Language, we are now looking at what is a homograph? How is it different/same from a homophone and a homonym?
What is the difference between whole foods and processed foods? Which is healthier?
