Dancing in 1R
We love to dance! Our September dance is to the classic disco hit, "Car Wash". Students dancing is a great body break that also fosters teamwork and physical fitness. Ask your child to teach you the steps!
All About Science Tools
We learned to distinguish between a range of science tools: microscopes, hand lenses, telescopes, binoculars, and cameras. In these photographs, students are marking which tool could have produced a series of images.
1R Students Are Blogging!!
Searching For Vowels
First graders have been learning that every word in English contains a vowel. Here, students are acting as vowel detectives, finding at least one in every word and marking them with yellow markers.
Our First Secret Reader!
We were so excited to have our very first Secret Reader on Friday! She did an amazing job reading to us and sharing her culture.
In the photo above, 1R students react to the book, Arthur Babysits, by Marc Brown! The book tells the story of Arthur babysitting the "terrible" Tibble Twins. As a follow-up to the story, we wrote about whether or not we would want to have a twin. Of course, one of our classmates was able to share what that is really like! The class did a great job with this activity.

Figuring Out a Mystery Number
