Reading: We read poems that express different emotions. Some emotions that were covered were lost, angry, and sad.
Writing: For our poetry unit, we are worked on our poems about taste. The students ate pretzels and applesauce and wrote about the different tastes in their poems.
Math: We learned about measurement and length. We used snap cubes, paper clips, colored titles, and inchworms to figure the length of different objects.
Science: The unit is Frog Study. We are learned about the next two stages in the frog's life which are tadpoles and tadpoles with back legs.

Snack and Birthdays
To help keep germs away, I would like to have snack individualized for the students. For example, if you purchase a big box of goldfish the goldfish must be placed into 20 zip lock bags for each student to have.
First Grade will longer celebrate birthdays with "cake." If you would like to celebrate your child's birthday, please donate a book to our library. A family member may also want to read a story to the class in honor of the student's birthday. Please email your teacher to set up a date.
First grade is accepting any child friendly magazines! Please bring any magazines you are willing to donate in with your child.
