1st grade….what a busy start to the year we have had. The children have been learning consonant sounds and short vowel sounds and that the vowels and consonants make words. The children have taken home spelling words and have had spelling tests. They have been reading lots of different books that they take home each night. And they have learnt that a story has a beginning, middle and an end. They have also learnt that a sentence is a complete thought and it begins with a capital letter and ends with a period.
We are reading Dinosaurs Before Dark by Mary Pope Osborne. The children have learnt lots of interesting facts about dinosaurs….that there were canivores and hebivores. If you listen carefully you can hear dinosaurs stompping around the room!!!!!!
