October is Fire Prevention Month. First grade students learned about new fire fighting inventions in their Scholastic News, read many fiction and non-fiction books, and made a firefighter with a safety rule.
Mrs. Barnett talked with first grade about being perserverant–never giving up. A newsletter went home from her about this virtue and the service project for the month!
Below is an example of one of the noun projects using our tablets and an app called Pic Collage!
First grade learned about being a good friend with Mrs. McTaggart in the Life Education Van. We also learned about being healthy from Tammy, the Carpet Kid, and Harold the Giraffe!
Nouns…nouns…nouns….they’re all around us!
The first grade is taking part in the Projects by Jen online project called Stacking OREOs. Students had a great time stacking especially trying to beat their first attempt. We also had a tasting party and the winner was….Cinnamon Bun.
Students received information about the Club’s Choice fundraiser. They were very excited to learn of all the possible prizes while remembering the most important rule…safety! Forms are due on September 25. Please do not send money at this time. It is due at pick-up.
Mrs. Talbert’s class will be making different projects for the Gilman Healthcare Center throughout the school year. The students are creating their first gift using markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
Mrs. Barnett talked about good behavior choices. Then we played Good Behavior Bingo!
We remembered 9-11 by having a moment of silence, saying the Pledge of Allegiance, and Mr. Harkins speaking to us about what happened 16 years ago today!
