Fun times in first grade

Today we used the games Headbandz to practice missing addends in math.  We also practiced our doubles additon, turn-around facts, and math boxes in our math journals.

Two cuties lost a tooth on the same day!


In the words of Junie B. Jones, "pallies" on the playground!

Polygons! Are flat, closed shapes with all straight sides that do not cross.
Function Machines!  They provide practice with number patterns and math facts.

Place value! What digit is in the ones place? Tens place? Hundreds place?

Green Screen

We have finished our writing unit of Writing Reviews.  Your child's writing came home before vacation.  As a writing celebration, the children are filming their book reviews in our green screen room with Mr. Charltray just like Reading Rainbow!  We will upload these videos into your child's google account so that your family can access the video until 12th grade!
