We became engineers in 1D for the 100th day and build famous structures using 100 cups. We made The White House, The Golden Gate Bridge, and The Great Wall of China. Can you spot any other famous structures?

We learned a new game in math. We are using our 10s friends number facts to help us add larger numbers.
We learned two new games in math today – Bump & Jump and Terrific Ten Snake. Both partner games help us practice our 10s friends facts!
First graders had a special visit from a Chinese ribbon dancer. She taught us about the costumes and creating flowers out of the ribbon, then she did a ribbon dance performance. At the end we learned how to show our feelings through dance and got to practice our own ribbon dancing.
We are celebrating the Lunar New Year in first grade. We learned about the Chinese zodiac, made dragon puppets, and created our very own rooster hats to celebrate the year of the rooster!
