Grade 1 - November 17/ 2017


Good Morning Canada.png

This week we received our Good Morning Canada books, which were given to all Grade 1 students across the country. We have used this book as inspiration to create our own book about Canada and Canadian symbols. Also in our UOI, we revisited the questions we initially had about Canada in order to gage our new levels of understanding.

In math, we introduced the concept of doubles as a computation strategy and played games and made mini-books to further reinforce this idea. In literacy, the students listened to poetry and started visualizing images in their mind. We examined author’s purpose and will continue to do so next week.

Looking ahead
