We have been learning about papel Amate. Ancestors of the Aztecs create these beautiful bark paper pieces of art. You will see quetzals, birds found in Mexico, as well as other scenes of nature and village life.
We are BUGZ play ready! Can’t wait to see parents tonight at 6:30!
We have some new buggy classmates in 1-D. What will they become?
We are starting a unit on data collection. First graders made up their own survey question and collected information about their classmates using tally marks.
We decorated for Cinco de Mayo with papel picados. We learned about the history of the holiday as part of our study of Mexico.
We started KidQuest today! We refreshed our minds about growth mindset and read "Oh, The Places You’ll Go!" Then, we sorted ALL the books in our classroom into fiction, non-fiction, and "waiting place" books.
This week, we have learned so many new math games working with teen numbers!
Thank you to all of our 1D grown ups that came to see our Wonder Research this morning at our Publishing Party!
Today, 1D students compared the features of books to the features of poems! Together, we wrote down what we know about books and poetry, and then we filled out graphic organizers!
April is Poetry Month. We are learning about similes to get our "poet’s voice" ready.
