What is My First Grader Learning during the 1st NINE WEEKS? STEM Focus: Water Everywhere: Designing Water Filters ESSENTIAL QUESTION: Who needs water and why should we worry about filtering the water? SCIENCE TARGETS SOCIAL STUDIES TARGETS Target 1. Identify types of weather and the characteristics of each type. Target 2. Observe, measure, record and communicate weather data to see patterns in weather and climate as it relates to weather in a journal or on a calendar daily and seasonal. Target 3. Demonstrate the use of weather instruments by recording weather data (thermometer, wind vane and rain gauge) Target 4. Correlate weather data to seasonal changes. (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions and weather events) Target 5. Recognize changes in weather when it freezes (ice) and when it melts (water). Target 6. Identify forms of precipitation such as rain, snow, sleet and hailstones as a solid or liquid based on temperature. Target 7. Determine that the weight of water before freezing, after freezing and after melting stays the same. Target 8. Determine that water in an open container disappears into the air overtime, but water in a closed container does not. Target 1. Describe and understand how historical figures and patriotic words in songs display positive character traits. *Historical Figures- Johnny Appleseed, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, Sacagawea, Harriet Tubman, Theodore Roosevelt and George Washington Carver * Traits- Fairness, respect, conservation, courage, equality, tolerance, perseverance and commitment *Songs-America and America the Beautiful Target 2.

In this range, read and write numerals to represent a number of objects with a written numeral. Target 1. Students will retell and read stories by asking and answering questions about key details, characters, settings, and major events, central message while emphasizing meaning of words and phrases. Target 2. Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another. Target 3. Distinguish between defining and non-defining attributes and compose 2 & 3 dimensional shapes and create composite shapes. Target 4. Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares. Target 5. Understand that 2 digit numbers represent amounts of tens and ones using manipulatives such as dimes and pennies and mentally find 10 more/less than a number. Target 6. Add & subtract within 20 to solve word problems with unknowns in all positions and understand the relationship between addition & subtraction. Target 2. Students will demonstrate understanding of word relationship and word meanings, using one or more key attributes and real-life connections between words and their use. Target 3. Students will be able to use conjunctions to signify simple relationships in conversations, writing, and comprehension. Target 4. Students will read grade-level prose and poetry of appropriate grade level. Target 5. Students will apply grade level phonics and word analysis skills while demonstrating spoken words, syllables, and sounds. Target 6. Students will understand basic features of print using conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing and speaking. Target 7. Students will read informational text appropriate for first grade fluency. Target 8. Students will Identify who is telling the story at any point in a text. Target 9. Students will write on a topic recounting two or more appropriately sequenced events, responding to questions, including details, ordering of events, and providing sense of closure.
