Yes, it was a spook-tastic week in first grade! We practiced fact families, worked on our reading stamina and discovered who inhabits the Rainforest! This is by far our favorite, and we love all the animals that inhabit this special place. If you have a moment to stop by, please “walk” through our amazing habitats in our foyer.

It was all about the pumpkin this week. We predicted if our pumpkin would sink or float and then made a bar graph and used tally marks to record our data. We spent time during Writer’s Workshop creating original stories about the pumpkins that we illustrated.

Our very first Fall Festival was a huge success! The kiddos did not miss a beat when the fire alarm went off unexpectedly. They did an amazing job getting to our safe place while navigating capes, swords, shields, princess dresses and more! The hayride was also a fan favorite-great job to Britney for organizing the ride!

Enjoy the long weekend, and we will see everyone Monday at our regular start time ( 8:20).
