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 know this post comes late! We had so much fun during the Christmas season...wish I had captured more moments in pictures! I did capture some games from Polar express day. Then we rang in the New year by celebrating "Noon year's eve" and we counted down to 12 pm!
Just wanted to share a few random pictures of things we have done over the last few months!
Feathers, Native American vests, Pilgrim hats, Pilgrim vests, food, and more! We got all dressed up and ready for a feast with our friends! We even had Native American names like Brave Cheetah, Whispering Butterfly, Jumping Fish, and more! The kids learned so much about the lives of Pilgrims and Native Americans throughout our preparation for the feast. The most memorable for me was making homemade butter like the Pilgrims! I also included pictures of their Turkey projects : )
We conducted an election in our class! We voted for a class president! We nominated, campaigned, voted and finally elected Khloe as our class president and Logan as our class Vice President. I didn't get many pictures but enjoy their campaign commercials!
We had so much fun learning all about Lois Ehlert, the author! She loves nature and animals, and most of her books are about these things. She is a great example of a fantastic author that writes about things from her life! We went on a leaf hunt and made our own leaf characters inspired by Lois Ehlert's book Leaf Man. So much fun!
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!
