We finished our class acrostic poem today. Then students worked on their own.
We took a math assessment today that included all first grade math skills taught throughout the year. I talked to kids about how some of the concepts haven’t been taught yet, but to just try their best. This will show me which skills have been mastered already. We will take it again at the end of the year to see how they improve. I will share these results on the data sheet I send home with report cards.
We had an amazing presentation from Dean Jacobs today. He is a Nebraska native who has been traveling the world for many years. He shared his experiences with us today. You can visit his website to see more information. http://www.deanjacobs.org/index.html
We have been working on adjectives a lot over the last few weeks. Students got creative today with their adjectives. They wrote 6 adjectives for how they would describe themselves on the rainbow strips. Then we got a little messy with glitter!
