What a wonderful Monday! We started with our morning meeting and then went right to vision screening.
When we got back, we got right to work by starting read to self.
After reflecting and sharing some wow words, we jumped into word work. Before we started word work, our Queen and King of read to self were awarded. We also decided that tomorrow we will take some time to review what read to self looks like!
We have almost made our rounds during word work so that everyone has been to each station once. We are excited to go back to our favorite stations and to have some choice before we get new stations next week.
After snack we enjoyed recess and then we were off to art! When we finished art we were already off to lunch. Since our tummies were filled and we were re-energized, we started math. We had POTD and then took a test all about subtraction. We even reviewed the synonyms (same meaning words) for addition and subtraction.
When we finished math, we packed up our stuff and got our folders. Those of us who were able, got our chatter prizes, and headed towards Jewish studies!
Tuesday morning we started with our usual morning routine; journal and morning meeting. We began our work with read to self. We had our books, found our cozy spots and began our reading! Ms. Lewis took turns reading with us and she even recorded some of us..be sure to keep an eye out on our Blogfolios for a new post!
After reflecting, we started word work. We were excited to work with our new words!! We also finished going to each station and we can’t wait to learn about the new stations Ms. Lewis has come up with!!
When we were finished with word work we were off to PE. Tuesday is our running day, so we were extra hungry when we came back from PE..good thing it was snack time!! We listening to Junie B Jones while we munched and the we started math.
We did POTD and also took a test! We took a cumulative test, which means it was a review of everything we have learned so far this year! When everyone was finished, we had time to go to recess before lunch Then after lunch we went right o music then came back to Ms. Lewis to get our folders and head off to Jewish studies.
We were busy on Wednesday. We started our morning and took our time since we were going to science first! After the pledge and hatikvah we headed to the science lab for the 2nd time in 1st grade!! We were learning about bird nests–how cool!!
When we were finished with science we went right over to the gym for PE and came back to enjoy snack. What a fun morning!! We listened to Junie B and moved on to Daily 5! We started with read to self.
We enjoyed our time and even went a little longer than 10 minutes!! WOW Ms. Lewis loves getting to read with us, too! Such a treat.
During word work we enjoyed bringing back some old favorite stations and trying out a new station or two! We brought back the magnet words, and rainbow writing. We kept the iPad station, and Ms. Lewis’ station. The new station was that we got to write a story using our spelling words, or we could write a sentence with each word!! We were pretty excited.
We wrapped up just in time for lunch. When we got back, it was time for math. We jumped right into our textbook. We are starting a new unit about position and direction!! Usually Ms. Lewis introduces this in a super fun way and we get to go all around the room in different ways and directions!! We started by going UNDER our desks and over to the LEFT of the room…
….unfortunately, when we got to FAR AWAY, we lost all control. It was very disappointing instead of running around the room and learning, we ended up back at our desks using our fingers in our textbook to learn. We still learned new things, but it wasn’t as fun as Ms. Lewis wanted it to be.
When we finished up math, it was almost time for Jewish studies! So we packed up our folders, got our chatter prizes, and headed down the hall to meet Morah Rachel and Morah Hannah.
Thursday, Friday, and Monday Ms. Lewis is will be out of town. Mrs. Raitt will be our substitute and we are excited to spend time with her and show off our skills!
On Thursday we will be coming home with NEW AR books! Make sure to read them 3 or more times before next Thursday, unless you have a chapter book.
Friday will be a fun day as always! We will start our morning with a Rosh Chodesh assembly and then go to library. We will have our spelling tests, play Homeworkopoly, and even do SHOW and TELL!!!! It’s been so long since wer have been able to do Show and Tell!!
We even get a birthday celebration, and mystery reader on Friday!! Wow. Ms. Lewis is bummed that she will miss all the fun!!!
COMING SOON TO 1st GRADE…………

We have an upcoming field trip! November 3rd, we will be heading to the Florida Theater to see Junie B. Jones!! We are still reading the stories that will be in the play; it’s been so much fun. We will be back to school for lunch, so there is no need to do anything special!
