This week we learned about patterns in math, including our clothes, counting by 2s and 3s.

In art we painted our dinosaurs.

We did a dinosaur dig in science and found fossils, a skull, and footprints. We all found different things! While half of the class did the dig the other half watched a movie about fossil hunting, then we switched.

We counted pennies and nickels in math.

We went to library and picked out books.

We had a nice week!

This week in Art we made clay dinosaurs.

We ran "Blisters for Books" and ran LOTS of laps!  We raised money for children's books in the library.  We could run, jog, or walk.

We did an experiment with rocks and leaves in science.  It told us that meat-eaters had sharp teeth to chew their food.

We had Game Day in math.  We had a school store and bought things with money.  We could keep the toys we bought.

We measured dinosaurs.  We used a tape measure and drew a line.  Then we lied down on the ground, head to toe, and counted how many first graders equaled an Apatosaurus and Stegasaurus.   We also learned that generally meat-eaters walked on two feet and plant eaters walked on four feet.

We had a nice week!

This week in the first grade we...

We learned a secret recipe in art. We made a special clay sculpture and Mrs. G put them in the kiln.

We learned about the explorer Christopher Columbus.

In library we talked about the periods of time of dinosaurs.

We learned that creatures that swam or flew during the dinosaur period were not actual dinosaurs.

We learned about number stories in math and learned to read the clock.

In math we learned how to count money.

We had a nice week!
