Today students discussed what good manners are at school. We discussed a book about manners in school and how to be a strong learner. Strong learners are prepared, arrive to school on time, help others, and are always respectful.

Students continued to read a story about the beach and added onto our writing about what they like to do at the beach.

For math, we started our first module. We used a strategy to count up from 5 (5+3=8, 5+2=7, 5+0=5, etc).

We also had so much fun in media with Mrs. Hansen!

Tomorrow’s Specials: Music & Art

Tomorrow’s Lunch: Pizza / Turkey & Cheese Wrap

Today students discussed what a good listener does. They decided that good listeners use their ears, eyes, and calm bodies to listen. They also discussed that good listeners listen to principals, teachers, and classmates. Good listeners do not interrupt, raise their hand, and follow directions. Good listeners are always kind.

Students also read a story about the beach and wrote what they liked to do at the beach.

For math we discussed what a mathematician is. Mathematicians add, subtract, work with shapes, time, and money. Mathematicians work with numbers, listen, share tools, make diagrams, and solve problems. Students created a mathematician cartoon with some of their math ideas.

**Today students are taking home an allergy paper. There are students in first grade with severe allergies. No nuts are allowed in our classroom.**
