Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss. In honor of his birthday students participated in a variety of daily activities. Each activity was associated with one of his books. For instance we wore our favorite hats for Cat in the Hat! A special thanks to Mrs. McMillan for setting up the special dress-up days, yummy cupcakes, and book give-aways!
Max and Molly came to the first grade classrooms to teach about body safety with a little help from Mrs. Barnett and Coach Harris.
Mr. Larry took us thru the steps to make wheat flour. He showed students the different parts of the wheat plant. Students took the head off of the stalk: then they had to get the seeds out of the seed coverings. The seeds were put in a mill. Children turned the mill to produce wheat flour.
Mrs. Talbert’s class surveyed Miss Kurtenbach’s class to find out their favorite farm animal! The favorite, by only a few votes, was……..the horse!
The high school held their annual FFA Animal Fair on Thursday! First grade was excited to see all of the animals and sit on the tractor! Thank you, FFA, for all of your hard work!
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!
