We will be reviewing number stories and fractions this week. We also will be wrapping up our basic fact quizzes that we have taken all year long. The kids have grown so much! 
We started to rehearse our end of the year play, "Live at 5"- this will be something we will work on daily through the last week of school. I will also continue meeting with my reading groups.  As each group finishes the book they are on, I will start reading testing again. 


We are done with the regular Chapters in our religion book, so we will spend time reading and discussing various Saints and Holy Days. 



We are working on our poetry books as often as we can. The kids have enjoyed reading some poems by other First Graders and some by famous poets like Shel Silverstein.  We will work on our poetry into the last week of school. 


Science:  We are starting a unit on plants.  The kids will work to identify the needs of a plant and it's lifecycle.  We will do our own planting in the classroom. Scientists will record their observations daily in their plant journal. It will be a fun way to wrap up the year. 


Social Studies:  We are creating a timeline of the entire First Grade year. Both classes are working on this timeline.  It spans the hallway, so come check it out. I will be sure to post a picture when it's complete.  It's a fun way to study timelines, and a really great way to recall all the fun things we did this year!
