We have had an exciting week in First grade welcoming our class elf, Cuddles McSweets! It has been an exciting adventure each day trying to find where she decided to hide and what fun things she had in store for us each day. We are counting down the days until Christmas break with daily themes. This week we had Elf Day, Kindness Day, Snow Day, Penguin Day, and Candy Cane Day. We recorded our daily adventures in our Elf Journal, where students wrote about what she did. We ended the week with a candy cane experiment to see which liquid would dissolve a candy cane the fastest (cold water, soda, vinegar, or warm water). The verdict was Warm Water!!! Best quote from scientist Josh- “The warm water will disintegrate it”.

In math, we are reviewing skills including addition and subtraction to 20, 10 more 10 less, ordering numbers, and number bonds.

This week in phonics, we focused on glued sounds ing, ang, ong, ung (“makes the sound of bells rung!”)

Our school pj dance party was a huge hit, and we had so much fun celebrating. Thanks again to ALL of the parents for supporting WCDS!

We spent the week also transforming our classroom into a winter wonderland for our Holiday Night. We hope you join us for some fun!
