January 14th-18th

First Grade had an amazing week!  This week we finished reading an information text titled, Going to School, which highlights schools around the world. We continued learning about place value as well as needs and wants in Social Studies. We also created artwork that will be shown at Open House.

Looking ahead to next week we will be learning…
