Welcome Back!

on April 3, 2012

We had a wonderful first day back from break.  We had an extra long morning meeting so people could share about the fun things they did over break.  After morning meeting we read a Little Bear book together and practiced finding examples of cause and effect.  We were able to identify what events were causes and what events were effects.  We also learned our new spelling words this morning.  This week y is a vowel that sounds like the long i at the end of words like sky, fly, and by.

In math we learned how to tell time to the half hour.  We are experts at telling time to the hour and half hour using both digital and analog clocks.  Our math test is on Thursday and this concept will be on the test.  Along with telling time we will be tested on fractions and finding 1/2 and 1/4 of a set of objects.

In science we started our study of liquids.  We learned that liquids can have properties, but they are different than the properties of solids.  We even learned some very big words like transparent, translucent, and viscous!

Tomorrow, the kindergarteners from Mrs. Thom’s morning class will visit us.  We spent some time today making a book for them and preparing a letter bingo card for them to play.  The first graders are excited to be leaders tomorrow when we show the kindergarten students what it is like to be first graders.   How exciting!  Have a good night!
