1st grade news

English:
We have been working on alternative spelling

ow and o_e for the sound oa (e.g. snow, cone, goat).
Spelling words to study for next week:
rat, rest, miss, dad, peg, hot, dogs

Math:
We are working on math facts families, trying to use the addition facts to solve subtraction equations, e.g. if the girls know 2+8=10, they can quickly count that 10-8=2 and 10-2=8.

Science:
Animal and their needs was our this week’s topic. We also started learning to tell the living from non-living things.

Playing alternative spelling games with two 2nd graders helping out.
