This week we jumped rope in PE.

In Art we are making rockets.

In science we are learning about manatees.  They do not sleep, they just rest. We are going to adopt a manatee.  They are related to elephants.  They breathe out of their noses. Manatees are mammals. The babies nurse from the mother's armpit.  Manatees do not have front teeth,  they only have molars.
They do not have predators and they are harmless.

First grade is awesome!
