Mrs. Fisher's Firsties

 


 Social Studies

Learning all about communities is our first unit in social studies. We begin with urban communities, learning through pictures of what defines this type of community. We then move on to suburban, recognizing the differences between these two communities and their location in relation to each other. Finally, we add rural communities for a third comparison. Our hallway is adorned with pictures of all 3 communities in a gigantic mural in the first grade hallway! In addition, we learn all about community helpers. Each student chooses a community helper to research and report on to the rest of the class!


Math

 

Unit 1 – focused on quick recognition of a quantity within 5 and how many more are needed to make 5. The same concept was extended to 10 and solving for how many more are needed to make 10. Students need to be able to anchor their thinking to 5 and 10 in order to quickly compute addition and subtraction problems. The goal is for students to be able to add and subtract large numbers without needing a pencil and paper, also referred to as mental math.

 


Writer’s Workshop

Narratives

The first graders are working hard this trimester to use all the tools they have learned in our mini-lessons about writing a great narrative. It all begins with a little seed of an idea – a small moment. We give the reader a sneak peek into that moment by adding details that make the characters come alive! That can be done with both pictures and words! Adding dialogue also makes our writing more interesting.
