We will continue out Unit 7 lessons. We will learn about fact families, fact triangles and making 10. Below is a short video explaining the fact families. To watch simply click on the house!
We will continue working on our personal narratives. What AMAZING writers we have in first grade! We read Big Mama and observed how the author stretched the story our for an entire book writing little things that happened on each page! Below is another book that shows how to stretch out a story.
The children are working on using their HUNKS AND CHUNKS to figure out tricky words. We are also talking a lot about the characters in the stories and what the author wanted the reader to learn. Keep reading at home. Books will come home nightly this week!
We will be learning about SCHOOLS LONG AGO this week. I love this unit and can't wait to show the children what school used to be like!
