We will continue to read through Frog and Toad Together. Scholars will be working on sequencing events, summarizing and transition words. Our new poem went home Friday and is I Know all the Sounds the Animals Make. We will recite this poem the final week before break.
This week we wrap up comparing numbers, our test will be Tuesday. Our next unit will be on graphing. We will discuss how to create a graph, collect data, and interpret the data.
We will continue exploring electricity. Scholars will explore static and current electricity, and who Thomas Edison was and how he is related to electricity.
We will continue to look at the three world religions. We will understand how and when these religions emerged and the role that they play in our history. We will use this knowledge as a framework for understanding many important historical events. We will learn the symbols for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Scholars will compare and contrast these three religions.
We are wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
The First Grade Team
