Weekly Happenings in First Grade

Students in first grade continue to work hard in math! Throughout the past week, students began to explore subtraction using pages from the Go Math Series, SmartBoard lessons, and hands on activities utilizing various math manipulatives. Up next…interpreting and creating different types of graphs.

In Language Arts, we have been busy! Students have adjusted to working within centers, within reading groups with our reading teachers, and even taking weekly spelling and story tests. It’s hard to believe, but students have finished the first book in the reading series! This year is flying by fast! For the first quarter of school, students are practicing opinion writing. Students are learning how to write a topic sentence, write supporting details, and write a closing sentence. It can be a challenging process, but our students are doing well and working hard.

Students in Mrs. Windle’s class worked together to make a special sign to show support for their teacher. Mrs. Windle’s class made a wonderful banner (with the help of Mrs. Hendrix) with words of encouragement for an upcoming race that she would be running.  It was a nice surprise for Mrs. Windle! The class even posed for a victory picture the Monday after the race! 


Weekly Happenings in PE

This week at Wait, in physical education classes with Mrs. Hendrix, the first graders have been learning to kick a moving ball with their shoelaces both in practice and game settings.  The Kindergarten students have been learning to move safely in space and have practiced doing so at different levels, in different directions, and in different pathways.  All students at Wait have been working on showing respect and good sportsmanship to their classmates in a more competitive setting, and have been self evaluating their individual progress each week.
