Science extra started off with two experiments that we first had questions about and then made hypotheses for. Our first experiment we mixed a borax solution and glue together. The students made a hypothesis that it would explode, bubble, and rise when they got mixed together. They sure had a surprise when it ended up […]
Our class loved using pipets and filling “clouds” with rain, hail, snow, and sleet. When the “clouds” got heavy enough they started “raining” down. It was fun to see the kids get into it and learn about the water cycle.
For our last day before Christmas break we celebrated with some Polar Express tickets, hot chocolate, and all day Polar Express learning activities! It was so fun to see them get into the theme and show up in their pj’s, get their tickets “punched” and sing to the Christmas music. Thank you to the parents who […]
For Christmas Around the World the students were able to “get on an airplane” and go to Mexico, Germany, Argentina, America, and Israel. They had a blast participating in activities that children around the world play during the holidays, making Poinsettias, and learning about the special traditions around the world.
For our Christmas ornaments this year we took pictures to be in a snow globe. Their faces and poses were too good not to post 😉

We had a lot fun today learning about the pilgrims and the Native Americans today. We planted corn, made butter, sailed ships, had a Thanksgiving feast, and played Native American games. Thank you for all of the help that we had today, we couldn’t have done it without you!
The Native American representatives for our district took some time to come to our first grade class today and share a little bit about their culture. We loved learning about how they made their blankets, where they lived, and what their babies slept in. They are wonderful people who taught us a lot!
We loved today!! Made some Witches Brew, had a fantastic Halloween party with great games, crafts and treats! Thanks for the help and thanks for the creative and fun costumes!

The favorite part of the whole experience was going in the firetruck, sitting in the special chairs, and learning about the special […]
