Terry Messick

Welcome to our awesome classroom!

 

Welcome to first and second grade at Greeley Elementary. You will find this school is truly a “hidden gold mine”.

 

We are certainly looking forward to the spring season in the Messick classroom! This is an exciting and interesting time of the year with many learning opportunities.

Our Language Arts studies will include creative writing focusing on “Ideas/Content/Organization.” Mastery of comprehension will include “Main Idea/Story Details/Predictions/Conclusions.” Following written directions is always expected. The “Reading Eggs” and “I-Station” programs have been instrumental components in increasing students’ individual phonics and comprehension skills in reading as well as increasing their technology skills on the laptops.

In Math we will concentrate on fractions and measurement. First graders are practicing addition and subtraction facts in a timely manner. Second graders are reviewing adding and subtracting with regrouping. They really enjoy the challenge of multiplication and division problems. All are challenged to problem solving activities.

Social Studies keys in on rights and responsibilities. Students enjoy learning more about scientists, artists and inventors. I can’t understand why students don’t remember the rotary phone! Families/trade, resources and choices, goods and services, as well as money and markets will be discussed.

Science this quarter sparks much enthusiasm. Matter, energy, forces, systems, and technology will be included in our curriculum. The students will enjoy learning more about recycling (not only on Earth Day), and raising butterflies from caterpillars. Spring and “new life” are spectacular!
