Batty about First Grade

1st
  • October 31st – Fall Family Fest Haven’t you always wished that there was a field day in the Fall?  A chance to hang out with your kids, their teachers, and fellow parents and enjoy the changing leaves around campus?  Us too!  So, we decided to make it happen with Fall Family Fest.  The WCDS Inaugural Fall Family Fest will be held on October 31st from 9:30-11:00 for PS-1st grades. The event will begin with a costume parade around our big loop at 9:30, led by our grand marshal, Ms. H, and Raegan Moore, the winner of the Grand Marshal auction prize. Your children should come dressed in costumes. You can drop your child off at the regular time and enjoy coffee in the gym with your fellow parents while you wait for the parade to begin. The children will rotate with their classes through four different stations from 10:00 – 11:00. You are welcome to take your child home after the festivities end around 11:00, or they can return to their classrooms for the remainder of the day. If your child plans to stay for the rest of the day, please send a change of clothes.

This week our students explored the grasslands through our deep dive exploration on habitats. They created a poster of the grasslands and displayed it in our class entrance. We have one last habitat to explore… the RAINFOREST!

We spent the week reading stories about ghosts, bats, skeletons, and more as we approach the spookiest week of all. We played math games and learned about fact families. Our students also learned facts about bats. They created their own scary monster’s to write about in writing workshop.

We are so excited for you to join us on Tuesday for our Fall Festival and we cant wait for you to see all the exciting things we have been doing in first grade this month!
