February was spent giving many mid year assessments. Students were given 2 online assessments given throughout the district and they did amazing! The expected growth on Early Star was 40 points and our average was +141! Star Math showed the same type of growth with the average growth was +119. I am super proud of their hard work. Our goal for reading in first grade is deepening comprehension. We continue to focus on this skill as we look for text evidence to answer questions. Word work has us learning about synonyms, adjectives, and adjectives. We are working on opinion writing and learning how we share our opinions with our peers. Many of them are increasing their level on LEXIA. The goal for the end of the first grade is level 9.
We wrapped up our place value unit as we worked on adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers. We have now shifted to measurement. The standard for first grade is non-standard units of measure so we will explore with many different tools to measure a variety of tools. The standard has us compare and order objects according to length, area, capacity, weight, and temperature.
We have also enjoyed learning about many famous African-Americans and women that have changed the world by following their dreams. Please ask your child about some of the many people we have studied.
Keep up the great effort Room 105!
Congrats to Dezmen on becoming a big brother last week! I am sure he will be an amazing big brother!
