Our Week in First Grade
We had a busy week in first grade! The children were so happy to lead All School Meeting on Tuesday. They were so confident and proud to share activities and talents! They continued writing reviews of their favorite things, practiced efficient strategies to solve math problems, described different balls and investigated how they move, and worked on reading like a star. We also finished our last Lunch Bunch group and enjoyed listening to Mercy Watson stories.

Fun Friday!
What's more fun than wearing pajamas and reading with buddies? Creating forts and reading with flashlights! What a fun day!

Book Project
The first graders had a great time creating dioramas today. They brainstormed their favorite parts of the My Father's Dragon series and created 3 dimensional scenes. They loved have different materials available to build with including clay, pipe cleaners, buttons, felt, and cotton balls. Thank you for sending in boxes so we could celebrate our reading together!

The first graders have been busy writing reviews, reading to understand, finding combinations of 10, and making crafts. Jacob's mom helped everyone make mandalas today. The first graders also made paper snow globes. What a creative bunch of learners!

Happy Holidays!
We had a fun day before starting our holiday vacation. The first graders enjoyed a holiday concert at BRMS this morning. They made a fun craft, read new books in the classroom, played with new games and materials, and enjoyed the craft and cocoa afternoon. Thank you UID PTO for organizing the afternoon party. We had a great day!
