During an extended Morning Work time, the first graders worked on their 100 countries lists and the 100 Piece puzzles. Following this, it was time for ASL. The other specials class of the day was PE. The super bonus word on the Unit 22 spelling test was scissors.
Julius shared his Student of the Week board. We learned that one of his talents is telling jokes, his favorite food is mac and cheese, and he would like to be President when he grows up.
During math class, we practiced two-digit addition with and without addition. The students also received an introduction to pi. We measured the circumference and diameter of circles, watched a video, and learned a song about the number pi. Ask your child to tell you about it!
After an outdoor recess break in the afternoon, we checked on our clay and water vials. Did you know that clay is made of particles that are even smaller than silt?
In social studies, the students learned more about Japan using folk art. They learned the story behind darumas and then colored their own. The uncolored eye can be colored in after your child has succeeded in accomplishing his/her chosen goal.
We ended the day by learning exactly what the "game" was in The Hundred Dresses. Ask your child to tell you about Maddie, Peggy, and Wanda and what happens before school each day.
As I mentioned in my email from earlier today, CPS is taking several precautions based on concerns about the COVID-19 virus. As a result, field trips and other special events will be cancelled until further notice. Please keep your family healthy!
