The last chance for picture retakes is today.
Miss Fischer's kindergartners used paper to make mosaics of their phone numbers in art. Students then used their art projects for graphing, writing and counting activities. Students made many number comparisons as they counted objects and built towers, bridges, roads and mountains using the digits in their phone numbers. The students also are putting their Halloween candy to use as they learn to read wrappers and find a variety of ways to sort the candy.
This week, the first-graders in Ms. Ralston's classroom have been learning all different kinds of new things. In science, they are learning about their senses. The students did several different science experiments discovering how their senses work together. They learned a six-verse song about their senses. The students studied the song finding the rhyming words, the phrases that were the same, the descriptive language, the key changes and what a repeat sign means. In math, the students worked on skip counting. They worked on adding and taking away, counting from a given number and other activities. In reading, the students learned about commas, questions marks, periods and apostrophes. The students read several different big books identifying each one. Next, the students picked different musical instruments to represent each one. As they read through the stories and came to one of the punctuations, the students played the instrument that represented their part.
