Here is some information about the Learning Choice Boards the first grade team will be posting weekly. You will find the boards under "Files and Documents" on teacher pages. We will also email the board when we post it here. Please let us know if you have any questions! 

The First Grade Team will be posting a Learning Choice Board here on our class web pages on Sunday night each week. We will also email it to all parents. The choice board will have optional learning activities for reading, writing, math, science/social studies. It will also have links to the Encore and Resource teachers’ web pages which will have suggested activities for your child.

These activities will be review of content that has already been taught this year in the classroom. We have provided you with enough options for your child to do something in every subject area Monday through Friday. However, this is meant to be a resource for families and is not meant to be overwhelming. 

As it is an optional choice board, you can choose to do whatever suits the needs of your family. There are different types of activities to include online learning and activities that you can do without needing the internet. While the board will change each week, the "every day" section will remain  the same as we believe reading is the most important learning opportunity for your child. During this time, please have your child read independently for at least 20 minutes. The work from the choice board activities will not be collected or graded, but please feel free to share any pictures of your child enjoying their learning!

We looking forward to seeing your child having fun with this! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Thank you for your continued support,
First Grade Team, Dumfries Elementary

This
Month in First Grade!  

March 2020 

This Month: We had fun celebrating the 100th day of school by doing activities involving the number 100. We are 100 days smarter! We also had fun using the Bee Bots on digital learning day.   

In Math, We have been working on place value and fractions. We’ve continued to work on our fluency with addition and subtraction and continue to work on solving story problems. It has been so much fun to see the students growing their skills over the month.  

In Language Arts, During the past couple of weeks in Language Arts, we have been working on researching and writing about non-fiction topics. We have been coming up with questions and “I wonder” statements and then we use the text features of the non-fiction books to answer our questions. It has been fun to see what the kids are interested in!   

In Science/Social Studies, We have been learning all about animals and how they’re classified. We have done fun writing projects that tie in with what we have been learning.  

Reminders: Please remember to read each night with your child! It will be important to practice these skills to maintain your child’s progress. J 

We are in the process of planning two field trips for our first graders. We will be going to the National Zoo on April 30 and to The Children’s Museum of Fredericksburg on May 18. Details and permission slips will be coming home soon.  

 

Dates:  

March 6- Family Movie Night 

April 30- Field Trip to National Zoo 

May 18- Field Trip to Children’s Museum of Fredericksburg
