    3rd Trimester



    The first grade team is thrilled to have reached the final trimester of this school year!  Next we will be kicking off our “Save the Planet” theme!  We look forward to our Arbor Day celebration and Earth Day activities.  Everyone is excited to see and discuss all of the recycling projects coming in from home. 

     We will be ending the year working on place value, geometry, time and measurement in our Math curriculum.  The students will also continue to build addition and subtraction skills, especially with double-digit numbers. 

     In Science, we will begin to discuss the different animal groups and their properties.  Tying into this trimester’s theme, we will be studying the needs of our school gardens and the planting process.             

    In Social Studies, we will continue to identify traditions and holidays that represent history and values of our nation.  The students are enjoying learning how maps are used to locate and identify places near and far. 

     This marking period will also focus on preparing our students for the upcoming school year as second graders!  We will review skills taught throughout the school year and continue end of the year assessments.  We look forward to finishing off a successful school year with a BANG!
