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!?

We LOOOOOOOVE to jump rope during recess! Their jump rope game has definitely improved! I think the current record to beat is 36 jumps??!!!

Clementines are sooooooo good this time of year;)

Balance feels best!

We are studying balance and motion in science! We are trying to balance work and fun every day! Here are some pics from our latest science experiments. There are also pics of our tie-dyed tshirts,  Charlotte's Web pumpkin, and the BiblioTech Run! (Brrrrrrrr!!!)

And a huuuuuge thank you to all the parents that braved the cold and supported us during the run!

Oh! And one minor thing happened this week... Esli turned 1!!!!!! Where did my baby go?!
