Lower School News: January 30 – February 3, 2017

1st Grade

This week in first grade, we jumped right into Math Chapter 7. Students modeled and compared two-digit numbers using greater than, less than, and equal to symbols. Throughout the week, students compared numbers using base-ten blocks, pictures, and looking at place-value to determine the greater or lesser number. Our first graders really enjoyed our Comparing Numbers Scavenger Hunt around the classroom. Their job was to find the cards around the room, identify the missing symbol, record their answer, scan the QR code to check their answer, and read the next clue.

 

Math Lab

Students studied coins and money amounts. They learned how to make different amounts of change using the least amount of coins in Math Lab.


Science Lab

Second Graders study Fossil formations and learn about extinction.  We created mock fossils, and view fossil sample , identifying both plant and animal remains.




 

First graders continue with their study of Weather and Weather Instruments. We are recording our weather data and becoming Jr. Meteorologists.

 




Box Tops

This is a reminder that CA collects Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
