In math we learned a lot of new vocabulary. 
We practiced with words like probability, certain, likely, less likely, and impossible. We worked with a partner to write sentences for these new words.  What do you think this one would be? I better tell Mr. Donohue to get to the store as soon as he can!!

Once we knew what our new words meant we did a math experiment.  We put 8 blue cubes, 4 red cubes, and 1
yellow cube in a bag.  We pulled out a cube 20 times and recorded what we got.  We predicted we would pull blue the
most, because there are the most blue and it is more likely. 
We were right!

We also were introduced to time in math this week.  We started out with telling time to the hour.  This was really easy for us to pick up and we did great! We had a day of rotating centers where we got to complete some worksheets, play a matching game, use flash cards with our
friends, and even play a timed game on the promethean board.  
After interviewing our pen pals from Mrs. Burr's class last week, we set to work creating our buddy. Using construction paper and our own creativity we made a replica of our pen pal to hang in the hall with our biography. Each student got to type their biography in the Media center.  They did the same for us. 
Check out the display in our first grade hall!

We began a new unit in reading this week, nonfiction! We explored nonfiction books and compared them with some of our favorite fiction books.  We have learned that a lot of nonfiction books have a table of contents and include real pictures! We had a great time exploring books on volcanoes,
dolphins, horses, and even fossils. We read a book all about weather and create a windsock to share what we learned.

Happy Spring!
