The Cooper School Daily

Hello Fall!

We hope everyone had an exciting Labor Day weekend! We loved hearing about all their weekend adventures! We also wanted to thank everyone who joined us on Curriculum Night. First Grade has been looking forward to sharing our projects and classroom with you. This week we worked on what data can tell us, stretching our small moment stories, and began our insect study.

What Does the Data Tell Us?

First grade loves math! First grade spent this week working with data. Students conducted a survey about favorite pets and then asked and answered questions about the data they collected. In our table groups, we worked together to create our own visual representations of our survey results and then compared our representations with the rest of the class.

Growing Our Writing!

First grade students have been working hard on stretching their small moment stories with lots of exciting details! This week we worked on revising our writing by adding more, checking for punctuation, and making sure we write down all the sounds we hear in words.  We love celebrating their brave writing!

Insect Study Begins!

Our first grade entomologists jumped right into our insect study this week! We learned the features that define an insect and where different insects may be found.  We had a blast working with partners to locate, observe and record as many insects as we could on the playground. We challenge you to do the same in your backyard as we continue to learn more about the different kinds of insects around us!
