    Reader's Workshop: In Reader's Workshop, our students have finished up our first bend in Reading. We completed our study of forming good habits with students thinking about the habits they used to have as readers and reflecting on the habits they have learned. This week, we start our next study of good habits, but now with solving tricky words. Students will learn strategies to solve tricky words so that when they are independently reading they have strategies to try!

    look at all parts of the word

    check words

    Writer's Workshop: In Writer's Workshop, students are re-reading their writing and adding more details. We will be conferring with them about their writing and having them look over it for punctuation and capitalization. As students are writing, we are also spending time teaching letter formation. First grade is a time to work on how we form letters properly.

    pencil and paper

    Math Workshop: In Math Workshop, students continue to count forwards and backwards. Students are thinking about numbers and how they can form them. We have been discussing numbers through dot talks, number talks, calendar, and math journals. Students are increasing their math awareness and number sense through these discussions. 


    Social Studies: Our first PBL is underway! We will be exploring maps, continents, and cultures. During this unit, students will be making and using maps and thinking about where their families came from. Also, we will send home some home-school- connections. These are little assignments that we encourage families to do with their children! It’s going to be so much fun!

    Team Chameleon

    We nurture the development of the whole child who is then inspired to continually expand all aspects of his/her being (mind, body, heart) and is empowered to improve the world for others. We build habits of mind and ways of being that are caring, curious, reflective and visionary.
