First Grade News with Mrs. Sobczak
March 15, 2019

What’s New?
We had an exciting afternoon today!  We came back from lunch to find the classroom a mess!  Apparently a mischievous leprechaun came to visit while we were out of the classroom.  He threw books on the floor, knocked over some chairs and even a couple of desks!  He moved all of our bananas down the tree too!  The good thing is he left us some gold chocolate coins.  So, it took a while for the children to calm down from that one. J Yesterday, we got to go the fourth graders’ Living Museum.  We all loved it!  The fourth graders were dressed as an important person in history and standing like a statue.  When we pressed their button they “came to life” and started telling us about themselves.  It was very impressive.  We learned about Dr. Seuss, Albert Einstein, Ruby Bridges, Steve Jobs, and so many more.
We read the story Amazing Animals.  This was informational text that told us about amazing features of eight different animals.  The focus skill was drawing conclusions. Thank you for listening to your child read at home.  The stories are getting longer and more difficult, so the children need to read, read, and reread to become more fluent.
We worked on double-digit addition and subtraction.  We learned that drawing quick pictures is one way to find an answer.  We also learned that we must add the ones together and add the tens together.  Sometimes we can trade 10 ones in for one ten.  Our test for this chapter will be on Wednesday.  I will send a study sheet on Tuesday.
We chose one animal that was in our story and wrote why it was amazing.  Mrs. Fifer came in to teach us how to use Microsoft Word.  We wrote a sentence about an animal and learned how to insert a picture.  The children loved doing this!  Today, we wrote a story If a Leprechaun gave me three wishes…  Our spelling skill this week was –ir, -ur, and –er. 
We shared our favorite historical person that we learned about in The Living Museum.  Many liked Dr. Seuss and R. K. Rowling who wrote the Harry Potter series.
At the science center, we got to create our own animals.  We had to think of what the animal would look like, what amazing feature it would have, what it would eat, and where it would live.  We also did some stemscope activities in small groups.  We had to figure out what man-made invention was inspired by which animal.  We learned that glow sticks were inspired by fireflies and bike helmets were inspired by turtle shells just to name a few.
Have a good weekend!
