Math

We are working on reading time to the hour and half hour. This is a great skill to practice at home!

We also practiced a variety of addition strategies and modeled different strategies on our number racks.

March Number Corner

The focus for number corner this month will be telling time to the hour and half hour and counting money with dimes, nickels, and pennies.

Every day we will practice telling time to either the hour or half hour. We will also discuss how much time has passed since the day before.

We are also collecting dimes, nickels, and pennies. Each day we spin the spinner and add that many coins to our collection. We practice counting the coins and use the graph to analyze our data.

We continue to count the days of school and use the number line to build Number sense and practice addition and subtraction.

We are also doing some activities to strengthen our addition and subtraction skills within 20. We will review fact families and make ten facts.

Number Corner is 15-20 minutes daily and provides the students with fun and quick math workouts or activities.

Social Studies

First graders are expected to know about the voting process. We put this knowledge to use by having a mini election in class. We voted for the best book character to be president. The first graders were able to campaign for their favorite candidate. Some even gave speeches to support their candidate.

We then voted. All voters had to be registered to vote and had voter registration cards. We casted our votes on ballots.

After the election we graphed our results. See if your first grader can tell you who won!
