Today one of your elves trashed our classroom. There were wrappers all over the floor. The elf left footprints on the wall and a picture on the SmartBoard. We don’t know if it is a boy or girl because the elf drew a disguise on the picture. Candy canes were hanging on the dots. Our sit spots were all over the place. The elf left chairs on top of the tables and old cookies on top of the chairs. The elf also flipped over chairs. The elf bit a gingerbread cookie and smashed it on the table. The naughty elf wrote on the board and signed the note with the name Peppermint Twinkles. If you know this elf, please help us!

Shaving cream can be used for a lot of things. We used it to practice our spelling words. We got blobs of shaving cream on our tables. We spread it out and practiced words with our eyes closed and open. When we were all done, we drew pictures and cleaned it up. Did you know that shaving cream is soap?
This is my class blog! I started it at the end of last year and mostly use it as a teaching tool where the class can write posts about things we learn. I may also use it to share neat things the students have done.
As this was the first week in school, we practiced all kinds of procedures. One of the things we practiced was how to be quiet when other students are testing. During this time, one group had such amazing teamwork that they were able to silently work together to use blocks to create a scene. Many first graders are still learning about sharing, so being able to work as a team without talking was an amazing feat! Look at the tree with the beehive and the birds!
We did an experiment. Some things float and some things don’t. We thought of some things to try. We put the things in the water and watched to see what they did. A flip flop floats. A globe floats. A cup floats. A rock sinks. A dice sinks. A wad of paper floats. A bingo chip floats. Could you try this experiment?
The Mayans invented lots of stuff. They made chocolate. They made jewelry like earrings. They made pyramids. They made their own game. They made art like masks. They made a number system and invented zero. The Mayans were creative and smart.
