Partner Work in Literacy and Math

Our class has been busy teaching and learning from each other! In both Math and Literacy, students in grade 1 have been using partner work to expand their thinking. Here are some pictures of students counting amounts by organizing and grouping in different ways and pictures of students sharing and talking about stories from the classroom library. Great work, everyone!

First Days in Math

The kids have been working hard at learning about Math in First Grade! They have built designs with pattern blocks, used the pattern block template to record their designs, learned about DreamBox on computers, and added numbers together while playing the game, Penny Dice! Here are some pictures of our first days in Math.
