Pumpkin Investigation:

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! 

Halloween Fun! 
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!

Leaf Investigation:
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!

Apple Investigation:
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!

Writer’s Workshop:

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. 

Box Out Bullying Seminar last Wednesday 9/25

Technology 1st Grade – Autobiography

Posted on November 1, 2019

Dear Parents,

Please teach your child their month, date and year he/she was born or have it written on paper that they will bring to their technology class. We will begin an autobiography project on the computer. When we get further into the project, I will be asking for additional information about your child, for example when their first tooth came in, etc. and pictures of your child from birth to this year.

Thank you,

Ms. Jackie Cassa
