The kids had a great time on field day. They played exciting games, got splashed with water, and had fun together! We even had a picnic with our 5th grade buddies!
We had so much fun learning all about plants! We spent a few weeks learning all about plants (parts of a plant, what plants need, how they are similar and different, etc.) We compared seeds in different types of fruits and vegetables. Then we ate different parts of the plant! Next we planted Lima beans and watched them grow! Not everyone's bean grew, but that's ok : )
What a great fiesta celebration! From the parade to the cascarones to the great food, the kids had a blast! The whole day was filled with smiles and laughter. Víva fiesta!!!
We have had a blast with shapes! We have built shapes using a variety of materials. They are little mathematicians! Maybe they will grow up and become architects! Enjoy seeing their hard work with some difficult tasks.
We had so much fun at the poetry slam! I am so proud of their courage and how far they've come as readers this year. Wish I had gotten more pics!
After reading Junie B. Jones Boss of Lunch, we wanted to help in the cafteria kitchen just like Junie B. did. However, they said we couldn't help but we could take a tour of the kitchen. This was the best! They loved every minute of it! We even fit our whole class in the freezer!
We had a blast on our field trip! We played in the park, had a picnic, and watched a great show! Love these 1st grade memories!
We made it to the 100th Day of School! We celebrated in lots of ways. We raced to see who could write their name the most times in 100 seconds. We made 100 fruit loop necklaces, built 100 cup structures, painted 100 dots, made 100 item crown hats, and even wrote about what we will do before we turn 100 years old. (More on that coming soon!)
We spent a few weeks learning all about How To/Procedural writing! We read how to books and followed the steps to make orange juice and slime. Then we wrote our own How To books- they know how to do lots of things!
Here is some of the fun we have been having in math the last few weeks! I see a room full of future engineers- how about you?
I love being a first grade teacher! This is my 5th year, and I love to watch these amazing kiddos grow right in front of my eyes. I am privileged to provide them with hands on learning experiences that will help them love learning. Have fun taking a peek into our classroom!
