August 14-18, 2017 Week 2

Hello to all our new followers!  My name is Ms. Harris and this is my 20th year to teach first grade!  I love everything about first grade!  I enjoy teaching all the subjects, but my favorite is reading!  Reading takes you to so many imaginary and real places.  My favorite all time read aloud story is"Junie B. Jones."  It is a funny make-believe book about the adventures of a little girl at school.  We end our day with Junie B and a snack!  The snack makes reading so much MORE interesting!  :) 
I'm excited to say that week one is in the books and we had a great first week!  We have 19 cute little faces in our class along with a student teacher.   Ms. Higgs is my student teacher this year.  She is a senior and a softball player at TAMU.  

This week we will read "Sam Come Back" in our reading book.  This story is realistic fiction that tells about made-up events that could happen in real life.  Our reading skills are blend and read short a words and digraph -ck words; recognize the characters and setting in a story; make inferences; and identify a complete sentence.  We will practice Saxon phonics daily.

In Math we will continue graphing.  We will be able to read a graph by looking at the data. We will also learn how to count and write tally marks.

In Science we will explore weather and weather tools.  We will learn what a thermometer, rain gauge, wind sock and weather vane are used for.

In Social Studies we will continue to discuss rules and why we need rules to stay safe.
