A Great First Day Back

It was a great first day back after an extra long February break!  There were a lot of new units that got going today!  First graders began an author study on Dr. Seuss, they began a new math unit, and a new writing unit (writing lab reports) that is integrated in with our new science unit on Force and Motion.  
We started our Force and Motion unit by reading a book called Newton and Me, which introduced the concepts of pushes and pulls.  We then went on a "motion walk" (we  had to improvise due to frigid weather) by watching a video full of movements.  Throughout the viewing, we recorded what we saw moving, and what the force was that was causing the object to move.
