Hooray...Fuzzy Friend Day!

The class has earned ANOTHER class compliment party! The votes are in...and the class will have a "Stuffed Animal Party" on FRIDAY (9-16-11). Please allow your child to bring ONE stuffed animal to school on Friday. The animal needs to be small enough to fit inside a bookbag. The children will be able to show their favorite stuffed animal what a day in first grade is all about! Let the snuggling begin...

P.S. This dog is one of MY favorite stuffed animals that I've had since I was a little girl...

OK...and MAYBE I still sleep with it ;) (Shhhhhh...don't tell!)

Lake Myra's 3rd Annual Fun Run was a BLAST! Thanks to all the families who came out to support their first grader! All of the kids gave their best effort and pushed themselves to run as many laps as their hearts and legs would let them! Poor things could barely walk on Friday...   We love LMES!!!

Just Another Day...

Take a look at our busy first graders...

Doing what Good Readers do

Filling out our Calendar Companion

Showing which equations are equal and not equal

Investigating which solids float and which solids sink

I'm so proud!!!
Oh...and Harper and Bacu are proud of the first graders too!

Bye Bye Braid!

I'm 12 inches shorter...well my hair is...
I hope my students recognize me ;)

I was happy to donate my hair to Locks of Love :)

Investigating Solids

We investigated to see which solids are attracted to the magnet...

After our investigation we learned that SOME metal solids are magnetic and some metal solids are not magnetic. We also learned that solids made of wood, plastic, or rubber are not magnetic.
