Welcome to first grade! My work in first grade is much different than the other grades. There is a teaching focus every six weeks - I teach in each of the first grade classrooms once a week for four weeks and then (based on observation/work), I pull a small group consisting of kiddos from all three rooms into my GT classroom once a week for three weeks. The pull out is an extension of the work I do with the whole class.
Week of September 10th - We launched our first week of work in first grade! We started off with learning each others' names, setting two big goals ("reminders") for the year (listening and participating) and then dipped our toes into our first topic of focus - LOGIC! Next week, we will try our first activity around patterns!
Week of September 17th - We continued on our path with logic with an activity around pattern recognition and continuation...more logical reasoning to come next week!
