Grade 1 Gazette


What a fun week!  We all enjoyed our field trip on Tuesday, despite the rainy weather.  We are very grateful to our Partners in Education, Walk About Acres for their hospitality.  We all made beeswax candles and ate honey ice cream, what a treat!  If you’ve never been I’m sure your first grader would love to show you around.  We finished the week with Science Olympiad and all enjoyed the hands on activities.

Math
We’re having an art show and YOU’RE invited!  In math we are talking about measuring and we read a book called Measuring for the Art Show.  In the story a little girl and her class have to measure artwork that will be displayed for an art show.  The first graders have decided that we should have our own art show and boy have we been doing lots of measuring to get ready for it.  This is COMPLETELY their idea and they are PUMPED!!  On May 5th our art show will be on display during the Picnic on the Prairie from 2:00-4:00.  Our artwork will be for sale for $0.25 a piece - what a bargain!  The kids have had lots of suggestions on what our money should be used for, from art supplies for our school, to a donation to help kids with cancer.  We will be voting as a grade level to decide what the money will go towards.  We hope you’ll be there to support us!  It is incredible to see their minds at work preparing for this big event!
