100th Day of School Celebration!
Who: 1st and 2nd graders
What: Projects to celebrate the 100th Day of School!
When: Due Friday morning, February 2, 2018
Where: We will tour all the other participating classrooms from 10:40-11:20 that morning so we can see their projects too. Students should plan to take their projects home that afternoon.
How: Each student is to creatively display a project of 100 “things.” The project must fit on the student’s own desk, so most poster boards are too big. The project should be thoughtfully and interestingly displayed. 100 pennies in a jar is not considered a “creative display.” While this can be a fun family project, it should be a project that reflects the student’s creativity and efforts.
We are going on a field trip to the Children’s Museum of Stockton!
Our field trip is Thursday, Nov. 16th. The permission slip is in the Oct. 26th red folder. Parent chaperones are welcome, but they will need to pay the $5 admission in advance, and provide their own transportation (you can leave from the school, or just meet us there). Chaperones will be responsible for watching over a small group of students at the museum–including your own child of course! Permission slips, plus money for admission and transportation for students must also be returned by the due date.
We finished up our Apple Week by rotating through all 4 first grade classes and doing different activities in each room. Look how cute our little Appleseed-lings are!
We sure had a great time learning about and observing the great eclipse! Thanks for the great photo Mrs. Lockett!
Join our Class Messenger to stay in touch!
Mrs. Martins, our WONDERFUL computer teacher, helped us to create a digital book on Storyjumper. She first read us the Dr. Seuss book What Pet Should I Get? Then each student wrote a short story about what pet they wished that they could get, and illustrated the story.
