This week we started reading groups.

In math we used cube trains to help us count and compare numbers.

In science we drew pictures of things from nature.

In Guidance we made creations from nature.

We had a bus drill.  We got to jump out the back of the bus.

We had fun with Mrs. Wilcox.  (The class filled her bucket!)

First grade is awesome!

This week we finished reading My Father's Dragon.  The chapter on the lion was a good part.  Some people liked when the boy gave the crocodiles lollipops.  The boy gave the monkeys magnifying glasses to find the fleas on the gorilla.  At the end,  the crocodiles carried the animals down the river.  Some liked the part when the boars tried to find the invasion.  We liked when he rescued the dragon.  We liked that book.

In math we did counting.  It was fun to count out loud.

We had centers this week. We like using iPads.  We liked listening to Skippy John Jones.

First grade is awesome!

This week we finished Owls in the Family.  Wol liked to ride on the handlebars of Billy's bike.  Weeps liked to sit in the crate on the back of the bike.  Wol also bit Mutt's nose and tail in the story.

We started a new math unit on money.

In Morning Meeting, we gave flowers to the teachers that are leaving the Lyme School.  The first grade got to move to the second grade spot.

First grade rocks!

This week we had May Pole celebration (or June Pole).

In Owls in the Family they now have 2 owls.  Wol likes to tease the family dog, Mutt.  Weeps does not believe he can do anything, including flying.    Billy tried to teach Weeps to fly by throwing him off the garage roof, but he still wouldn't fly.  Wol did learn to fly.

First grade rocks!

This week we started a new read aloud, Owls in the Family.  The family adopted an orphan owl.  It is funny!  There are many things that take place that we should NEVER do in real life!

We are learning about maps.    Maps are smaller than the actual area.  We drew maps.

Some children got their eyes tested by the nurse.

We have a new Author of the Month, Mo Willems.  We are reading a lot of his books!  Everybody in class can read his books by themselves!

First grade rocks!!!

This week we finished Charlotte's Web.  We watched the movie this week.

It was HOT and SUNNY most of the week.

We had our last 4 Winds.  We caught frogs, a baby turtle, tadpoles, salamanders, some exoskeletons of  crayfish.  Some of the salamanders were fighting and mating.  We found out salamanders eat tadpoles.

First grade rocks!
