Today, students learned a water cycle song, made a bracelet to help learn the phases of the water cycle, and labeled and color a diagram of the water cycle. We will do more water cycle exploration tomorrow, and we'll begin our learning about clouds!
We also began a close reading of this book:
Thunderstorms are a fascinating (and complicated) subject! We will continue to explore this text together tomorrow. Students were careful, thoughtful thinkers about the questions I posed to them today. We learned that it's helpful to go back and reread to better understand something and to verify our thinking. Were we right? Why or why not? What evidence in the text justifies our answer? Pretty impressive first grade thinking, don't you agree?!
