Dalton Local Schools Vision -  To collectively strive for excellence by inspiring and challenging each student to be their best.

First Grade News: 4-20-18 

 Wayne Lanes Bowling Trip:   What a day! Thanks to all of the parents for your help and support! The children had a wonderful time and hopefully recognized the forces of motion and thought about the lack of friction on the well-oiled lanes.  Encouraging others is also a lesson to last forever.  Thanks for an awesome day.

MATH:   We will be going back to Module 2 on addition/subtraction skills and strategies.  The children will need to have memorized the different ways to make ten in order to help with the strategies to be discussed.  0+10, 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5, 6+4, 7+3, 8+2, 9+1, and 10+0. 

SCIENCE:  We will be studying forces and the different ways in which forces react to create movement.  The children will work with pushes, pulls, friction and types of motion.

Our objectives are as follows: 

  • Objects can be moved in a variety of ways, such as straight, zigzag, circular and back and forth.
  • The position of an object can be described by locating it relative to another object or to the object’s surroundings.
  •   An object is in motion when its position is changing.
  • The motion of an object can be affected by pushing or pulling. A push or pull is a force that can make an object move faster, slower or go in a different direction.
  • Friction slows or stops an object’s movements.

SUBWAY READING: March was the last month for the Subway reading program.
