Smart Cookies

It was another busy week in Room 307. We started writing opinion pieces, looking for "buzz" words to determine if we add or subtract in a word problem, presenting artifacts from the past, and hula hooping! Hey, we work hard and play hard:)

QR codes!

We used QR codes to help identify the main idea of a text, and to learn information from photographs. These Firsties love using technology to learn! Vance Panthers Love Learning! (and after we learned and wrote All About Turkeys ... We had to make a little turkey of our own!)


And here is a picture of our A-Z drawings of Charlotte's Web! The class thought of every word for each letter! Well done! 

Aaaaand here's Esli! I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend. I am so very thankful for my family, friends, and Firsties! 
Gooooo Wolfpack!!! 

First Grade Update

We learned about the less than, greater than, and equal signs and how to use them when comparing numbers. Of course, Greater Alligator helped us:) We made sure to PROVE our answer...

"74 is greater than 47 BECAUSE 74 has 7 groups of ten and 47 only has 4 groups of 10."

We are studying balance and MOTION in Science. We made tops and observed that they move in a spinning motion.

We compared the text features found in Fiction (FAKE) and Nonfiction (REAL) books.

Twirly Birds! (I promise we are working responsibly and making safe choices!)

Well isn't this jacket just tooooooo cool!?

Clementines are sooooooo good this time of year;)
