50's Day

We enjoyed the 50th day of school. The kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade classes joined together for centers. We played Pick up Sticks, Jacks, put together 50 piece puzzles of the United States, went to a pretend drive-in movie and had hotdogs, potato chips and root beer floats, read Dick and Jane books in the Library, jumped rope to different rhymes, played Hop scotch, and with hoola hoops. At the end of the day we all gathered in the cafeteria for an old-fashioned sock hop. We did the Twist, the Bunny hop, Hand Jive, and lots more dancing. Fun times for all!

Grandparents' Day

Grandparents' Day was a lot of fun. Our room was filled to the rim with grandparents. We read from our reader, did a math rap, a math wrap, and did a math lesson with shape patterns. We recited our parts for our pumpkin play, and played vocabulary Bingo. Then the grandparents ate lunch with us. A fun time was had by all. There was lots of fun and lots of love all around.

Our Superintendent Read to Us

Mr. Snoddy, our superintendent came to our class and read "The Little Engine Who Could" to both first grade classes. He explained there were several lessons within the book. One about helping others, and another about when something feels difficult to do... to just think ..."I think I can, I think I can... " And you may surprise yourself and actually accomplish it! We enjoyed his visit to the first grade!

Our Pumpkin Play

Pumpkins here, pumpkins there. Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! Those were some of the words from our pumpkin play. We performed for the kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade classes. We memorized our parts really well. We also had to learn to know exactly when to say our part. Lots of work... but lots of fun!

Person of the Week

The person of the week lives with her mom and dad in a red-brick home. She has one rabbit. Her favorite color is pink because it is pretty. Her favorite subject is art because she wants to be an artist. Her favorite TV show is ‘Camp Rock’, and her favorite book is Green Eggs and Ham. She likes to eat ice-cream. She feels happy when her friends visit, and she likes to play with Alissa. When she grows up, she wants to be a teacher because she wants to teach children. If she could go anywhere in the world, she would go to Disney World. She feels she is special because her family loves her. She feels the best thing about her is her smile. She would also like you to know she likes to sing, and her mom calls her ‘Boo’.

More Center Fun

Our class went to Mrs. Irwin's 2nd grade class for centers and made our own apple pancakes... which, by the way, were DELICIOUS! We also made Johnny Appleseed pot hats, and worked on the computer on an interactive site. We all had lots of fun and experienced many different activities all having something to do with apples.
Fun times... happy children!

Apple Centers

We painted apple trees, played an apple memory game, and ate 'Apple smiles' in Mrs. Dye's classroom.

We spent time in both first grade and the second grade classrooms participating in apple centers. We made apple prints, played 'Hot Apple', and 'Apple, Apple, Pie', and also played Bingo using our new vocabulary words. Lots of smiles. Lots of fun!
