My first post as a 1st grader!

Helloooo friends!

It has been a ridiculously long time since I last blogged. (Thanks to Mom being so busy). None the less I am back!

This school year is already flying by. I mean, come on now, we are already in the 2nd 9 weeks of school. I am loving my new friends and my new grade.

Did I mention I am now a 1st grade student at John C. Webb Elementary? It is still in Navasota, but when Mr. Nesloney moved schools, we asked to go with him.

I miss my friends from last year. I wish they would stop by more, but they are busy so I completely understand.

But like I said, I love my new friends! We have learned so much already.

Right now we are learning about Author's Purpose in Reading. That means we have to find out why an author has written what they wrote. Meaning -Is the book supposed to inform us or entertain us? It can be difficult to figure out, but a lot of times, knowing if it is real or fake can tell us!

In Math, we are solving word problems of addition or subtraction up to 20. We are really focusing on Fact Families and understanding that we can switch the addends (the numbers you are adding) and still have the same sum.

One amazing thing we have been working on is our blogs. That's right! The Globehoppers in Mom's 1st grade class are officially blogging! Just like me.
They have been working really hard with their 4th grade writing buddies in Mrs. Reynold's class. The writing buddies help us by teaching us how to revise and edit our journal writing to make it better!

The link for our class blogs is www.kidblog.org/class/the-globehoppers .
They are published for the world to see, so feel free to head over and leave a comment there too! We would love to know where you are from, so that we can track locations on a world map.

First Grade is crazy tough, but I am having a blast and learning a lot!

Well friends, I hope you have a wonderful day. I promise to blog again soon.

Until next time, Have a Hoppy Evening!
