Today we had the privilege of getting to see/ learn about the 5/6 graders science experiments. They did such a great job and put so much efforts into these projects, and the 1st graders really enjoyed them!
As you know, on Fridays we get together with our 3rd grade buddies. We went to the woods and enjoyed a nature scavenger hunt!! What a blast we all had!
On Fridays 1st grade has the opportunity to buddy up with 3rd grade. This week we partner read. Both classes did very well and look forward to getting together every Friday!
Today 1st grade had the opportunity to meet Farmer Andy and learn all about honey bees. We learned about pollination and how honey is made, as well as how it’s collected from hives. We had the opportunity to taste different kinds of honey and vote for our favorite one. Be sure to ask your kiddos what they learned today. They had so much fun! Also be sure to check out the ” Waggle Dance” on YouTube ( shows how bees communicate).
Today 1st grade had the opportunity to use a new classroom tool. We ordered some “Boogie Boards.” These are taking the place of our individual dry erase boards. The kiddos absolutely loved them! They come with a stylus and instead of having to erase them you push a button and they erase. We used them for math today and and the kids didn’t want to put them down. We will definitely be using them a lot this year😊
We had a little shaving cream fun in first grade😊
The first two days of first grade have been great!! We have been getting to know each other and enjoying the sunshine.
