Bridges to First Grade

By in , ,

This week in first grade we have talked about characters, setting, real vs. fantasy and compound words. Our activites involved reading and looking at different books by Laura Numeroff such as If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, If You Give A Pig A Pancake, etc.  We did a  writing assignment about pigs and shared them with the class.  In science we made our own charts showing the different tools a scientist uses and for what.  We are continuing learning our sounds, writing our letters, counting, learning place value and lots of other fun things. I have seen a lot of improvement since the first week of school in their comfort level in writing and in their overall independence.
