A huge thank you to Deagan’s mom for coming into our classroom to teach use some yoga poses and breathing exercises. We learned that we can use these techniques to help us focus, become more energized, or feel more grounded. I will use some of these poses and breathing exercises to help the first graders do their best learning in first grade.

Making Estimations

We have been making estimations, or good guesses, when measuring with non standard units. Yesterday we measured how long a jump rope was with different steps. We learned that depending on the size of a person’s foot he or she would take more or less steps.

Word Collectors

We learned that good readers and writers read, use, and understand interesting words. The book “Max’s Words” helped us find interesting words. We will use our word collectors to write down interesting or useful words.
