November came and went!

First Graders were working so hard in November, we were confused when it suddenly became December! We spent the month working on STEM education, reading, writing and building our math fluency with games and activities.

Sweet Pickins’ Pumpkin Patch

Kindergarten, First, Second and Third grade went to Sweet Pickins’ Pumpkin Patch for an educational field trip the end of October. It was great to see them making new friendships and enjoying fall in Montana.

Information Writing

First Graders began working on informative writing this week. Our mini lessons included learning to use visuals to write and then we started using Alphaboxes to collect unique and interesting words to include into our writing.

Math Workers!

I teach math using the structure of Math Daily 3, where students are given choice on how they spend their time. Their options are: Math by Myself, Math Writing and Math with Someone. It is so powerful to see how invested my students are in their work! I love seeing their problem solving and teamwork skills in action on a daily basis!

Volcanos!

This trimester our science/social studies unit of study is mountains. Some new learning that was discovered is that volcanos are actually mountains! This information was fascinating to my students. We then made our own paper mache volcanos! Pictured below are the final products!

We erupted them two times because we learned some tricks after our first eruptions. Enjoy the videos below!
