"This week we have been learning that reading is THINKING! In real books, you can learn something new. We have been learning lots of different things. We mark it with an L. Sometimes we read magazines to learn about some animals.
If you go to PebbleGo, you can learn about biographies about all different kinds of people. Did you know George Washington is on the quarter and he was the first president ever? We have been writing biographies, too! We interviewed other first graders to learn about them, and now we are writing their life stories. Come check them out in the hallways of our school!
In math, we are still learning about dimes, nickels, and pennies. We also work on reading the time. We have been working on rulers and using the numbers and marks to measure inches."
