Social Science Fridays- last Friday we explored maps and what they tell us. We also learned the major parts of a map, compass rose, title, and key. This Friday we will look a the earth and how it is divided into oceans and continents. We will also explore what resources come from where.
Homework- Read 80 minutes a week (20 min a day). Along with the homework menu. I have included a homework assignment that puts our newly learned map skills into real life practice. The Fire safety map is designed to be a team effort between parents and 1st graders. I am excited to see what they turn in!!!
Book Orders- The kids are so excited about book orders. The books are usually a pretty good deal and our classroom also earns free books. Ordering online is the easiest and fastest way to get your books. https://orders.scholastic.com/R62C4
