Recently in the classroom...
First grade students have been busy learning routines, making new friends, and getting to know their teacher. We have been focusing on how to be good citizens, and how to follow the Westgate Way in our Social Studies. In science we have been learning how to be safe scientists, how to record our thinking, and how to handle our science tools responsibly. In Language Arts students have been enjoying listening to wonderful picture books, new poems and learning the routines for Readers Workshop. Writer Workshop is set up! The children are enjoying writing with their writing partners, and have learned how to sketch a plan for their writing. The First Grade team and students are eagerly awaiting the births of Mrs. Wilken’s and Mrs. Brown’s babies!
