In Language Arts we are beginning a new program that focuses on the 6 write traits: Ideas, Organization, Word Choice, Voice, Conventions and Sentence Fluency. We have started with “Ideas” this week and I am thrilled with how well these grade ones rocked it! Please check out our instagram if you would like to see some examples.
This month in Math we have been working on finishing up learning about all the different math strategies that we can use to solve addition and subtraction questions (using a number line, doubles, counting back, etc.). We are now going to begin working towards Math Daily 3: Math by Myself, Math with Someone and Math with Teacher. This structure allows for a wider differentiation for math levels, providing support or challenges where students need it most.
In Science we have finished learning all about the 5 senses and students will be creating a project about 1 or more of the senses to show their learning. Students gave ideas for how they would like to show their learning (creating a poster, presentation or book via paper or iPad) and decided whether or not to work on it on their own or with someone. Stay tuned for those!
Microsociety! Students have now experienced the job fair AND their interviews! Students will soon receive their offers of employment and production days start TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, with our first market day soon to follow! So exciting! Thank you to all parents for your continued support and enthusiasm for this incredible embedded program!
Our school would like to sponsor Ava Gerhardt who will be participating in the Hair Massacre in support of her Mom Desiree Gerhardt in her battle with cancer. On Friday, February 19, 2016 we are asking staff, students, and community members to donate $1.00 for this worthy cause. Please send a loonie with your child to school on this date in support of Mrs. Gerhardt.
We post in our Instagram throughout the week in an effort to have transparency in what your child is learning and doing in school! Follow us if you would like to follow along @gradeonewonders
And if you haven’t joined our classroom for reminders on things going on at PVS and in our classroom, please download the app Remind101 and search for our classroom @gradeonew
