Other morning events included spelling practice and financial literacy. Ask your child about needs and wants for a sleepover! During math, the first graders identified and described one equal part as a half of, a third of, or a fourth/quarter of a whole. They used rulers to draw straight lines.
Following Quiet Time and P.E., the boys and girls participated in an activity to better understand the concept of change over time. We spent time sharing observations about a series of posters that showed the same place but at different times. Then, we moved the posters around until we figured out the correct chronological sequence. Ask your child what he/she noticed in the posters! Parents, if you would like to borrow the posters for a closer look, please let me know.
The first graders received Homes Around the World coloring and activity books. They also began sharing descriptions of their own homes. We collected data about the materials used to build their homes and how many families live in their home.
After school, many families returned to Bell for Fall Family Night. Thanks for stopping by Leaf Land to make leaf rubbings, leaf prints, and leaf necklaces!
Parents, please check backpack mail for an important note about the "Taste" component of this Friday's Pumpkin Day. We will participate in some activities to prepare for the big day tomorrow!
