This week, our first graders will venture into life as a Pilgrim. From experiencing a journey on the Mayflower, to discovering life in a Pilgrim colony, we will be studying the differences between Pilgrim life and ours. We will even be making and tasting hasty pudding!
Along with studying past vs. present, we will be learning about telling time to the half hour (7:30, 10:30, 1:30, etc.), adding and subtracting using the number line, and Habit #6 - Synergize.
In reading, we will be learning how to visualize what we read. This means picturing a story in our minds (we call it making a "mind movie") as we read. Please encourage your student to talk about their visualizing as they read at home this week!
