Happy Valentine’s Day to you! What a great party from passing out and reading valentines to having a yummy snack to 3 centers including sight word bingo, a STEM activity, and a candy heart game! Thanks to allwho helped make this day memorable for the students!
Our character ed trait for this month is being content. We know this means being happy with what we have but not being greedy. Our service project is to set up a community library so others can enjoy books as much as we do. We are in need of books to put in the library. So…if you have any books your children are tired of please send them in for our new project!
Look how much smarter we are after 100 days of school. We are better readers, math mathematicians, and problem solvers.
Mrs. Talbert’s class earned a drip drop party. After the voting was complete, we had hot chocolate and cookies and a snowball fight! Look for the flying snowballs!
Mr. Larry, Ag in the Classroom, visited the first grade classrooms to discuss livestock. We learned about cows, pigs, chickens, etc. This lesson will help us to get ready for our trip to the FFA Animal Fair at the high school in February!
What is the most important meal of the day??? Breakfast!
What is the stick to your ribs breakfast food? Oatmeal!!!
Mrs. Luhman talked about the importance of breakfast and some great choices to keep us focused and learning!
Do you get started fast? Do you stay with something even if it’s hard? Do you keep practicing to become better?
A special showing of Despicable Me 3 was shown at the Onarga Theater for all Iroquois West Elementary students in Gilman. While there, students enjoyed the movie, popcorn, and pop!. A special thank you to Mr. Harkins for this wonderful gift!
The December Character Ed service project was to collect food for the food pantry. After collecting more than 100 food items, the first grade classes walked to the food pantry to drop off their food items and go on a tour. Thanks to Mrs. Guttendorf for explaining how the pantry helps our community!
For the month of December first grade students were asked to bring in food items to donate to G.O.D.S. Food Pantry instead of a class gift exchange! Ask and you shall receive! We appreciate the generous hearts of our first grade families!
