WHAT ARE WE UP TOO?
All last week, first grade investigated pumpkins. We explored the outside and inside of pumpkins, made estimations on how many seeds are inside of pumpkins, counted the lines on pumpkins and finally got to explore the inside of a pumpkin! We each got a turn digging inside and feeling around; even using our five senses to help us explore! Hmm… feels like… zombie brains!
First grade had a blast spending our spooktacular day doing some mummy math, batty subtraction, and finding out the secret code for witches brew! We ended the day with some well deserved treats and a Halloween movie!
Class Trip to Green Meadows Farm @ Aviator Sports 10/30/19
We sure did have a blast on our first field trip as first graders! We saw animals, picked pumpkins, drove a tractor and even caught some well needed zzz’s on the way home!
This week our Science unit was all about leaves! We went on a leaf hunt, measured leaves, explored different leaf textures and more!
Apple Investigation: Sink or Float? / Apple Tasting
To conclude our apple investigation this week for Science, we made predictions to see if apples would sink or float. After, we taste tested 4 different types of apples!
Today we investigated the inside of an apple including the core, stem, flesh and skin. Then we cut and labeled the parts of an apple. After, we had a yummy treat.. apples!
NEW IN FIRST GRADE!
Today I introduced your children to our Writer’s Workshop. This will become a daily part of our routine to get us more into writing. We discussed dating our work, forming proper sentences, finger spacing our words and writing between the two blue lines for neatly written work. Below are some picture’s from today’s introduction.
