First grade world

This week we had a book fair.

We had a field trip to see a Mariachi Band.  We liked the music, the pretty dresses, the guitars, when they greeted us, and feeling the happiness.  We liked that they made a bow with their feet while they were dancing.  Plus, the y had really cool hats!

We got early each day for conferences.  Mrs. Wilcox told our parents about how great we are doing - especially reading!

We watched an interview with the Pilgrims and Native Americans.

This week we had special guests.  We had veterans come talk to us.  Mr. Wilcox came to talk about World War II.  This afternoon two grandpas are coming to talk about their lives during Vietnam.

We did writing this week.  We wrote about what we are thankful for.

We did social studies.  We talked about pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians.

November 5, 2010

Today ends the first quarter.  We will have parent teacher conferences soon.

We started a social studies unit for the month.  It is about the First Thanksgiving.  We read about the ship the Pilgrims came over on, The Mayflower.  We took a pretend field trip to Plimouth Plantation.

Yesterday we read about Veterans because we have Veteran's Day off.
