Happy NEW Year!
We are off to a great start in 2015 and I am excited for all of the fun things we have to come this semester in first grade.
In November we worked on an All About Me project. The students were able to create themselves using construction paper and then wrote about a few of their favorite things.
In November we read a book about turkeys disguising themselves so that they weren't cooked for Thanksgiving dinner. The students then pretended like they were farmers and had to create a poster to find their missing turkey. This was a really fun Thanksgiving writing project.
My reading friends made their reading goal and so we had a stuffed animal day in our class. It was so fun to see my students reading to their stuffed animals!
In November we made pilgrims and wrote about different things that we are thankful for.
Elves invaded our classroom during the month of December. We made elves and filled out an elf application. On the last day of school we went on an "elf hunt"! The kids really enjoyed this activity.
Happy New Year from Mrs. High's Class!
