First grade is feeling rested and refreshed after a wonderful Spring Break. Since our last newsletter, the first grade thunderbirds have been up to a lot! In Math, students were practicing financial literacy and then moved on to exploring different types of shapes, both 2D and 3D. In Language Arts, students have been writing up a storm and their reading levels are improving daily. Science has been busy with fun times studying plants. Finally, students studied several important topics in Social Studies. Students did an in-depth study of Ruby Bridges to learn about all the hard times she faces only because she wanted to go to school. They also learned about important women in history. Stay tuned, as another update will be coming soon!
