September 30, 2016

This week we learned that there were different periods the dinosaurs lived through.  We learned this by laying dirt, sand, rocks, and water.  The deeper the layers were, the older they were.  The three periods dinosaurs lived in were Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous.

We started a new read aloud book called The Sasquatch Escape. 

We have new pets called Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches.  We learned about them and how to take care of them.

We learned about number bonds in math.  Number bonds are the parts to the whole number.  We worked in partners and table groups to discover different number bonds.  Mr. Valence sent us another secret spy message to solve in math.

Friday is "Dance Party Day"!

First grade rocks!

This week we learned about fossils.  Fossils are things that hardened in the rocks. Some fossils are just impressions in the rocks, not always bones.  We found them millions of years later.

We started reading groups.
