October 19th, 2018

Good afternoon,

It's Friday and the weekend is here! It has been a busy week in grade 1. In reading class we have started our new Journey's story, Tomas Rivera, and practiced long o sounds with oa and ow. In ELA, we began our narrative writing unit by practicing our past tense verbs and describing the beginning, middle and ending of a commercial.

In math we've been working on our subtraction strategies and in social studies we talked about producers, consumers and trade. Finally, in science we began our plant unit by planting seeds in the DISK garden - fun!
