First Grade FUN !!

Science Fun

This week in science our scholars learned about the sun and the earth. Scholars were so curious to learn about how the sun warms the earth. We learned about the length of the rays of the sun. Our scientists were amazed to learn that the sun’s energy is strongest when it travels the lowest distance. Ask your scholar all about the fun we had in science this week! 

Reading/ Writing

Our Writers are hard at work on their Author Expert projects! Students read several books by their author and chose one as their Mentor Text.  They studied their Mentor Text and used it to create an author inspired story.  In Reading, they identified the characters, setting, problem, and solution in their Mentor Text and are using it to create a book report.  They are also learning to use their iPad to find information about their author and the books that he or she wrote.  We can’t wait to create our Author Posters!
