We have been working hard in 2014!  We have been learning about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this week.  After reading our book, Dr. King’s Memorial, we answered questions about the story and even wrote down the page numbers that support our answers.

Mr. Turkey

Our class had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a video conference with another first grade class from Wappingers Falls, New York.  Mr. Turkey did not want to be a turkey on Thanksgiving so we had to choose a profession from a list of 20, and create our turkey in disguise.  The other class did the same thing.  Our class wanted Mr. Turkey to be a soldier.  The other class chose a basketball player.  They even decorated it with a Phoenix Jersey!

Marty Mcguire’s favorite toy in the whole world is Bob the Lion!  We thought it would be fun to bring in our favorite stuffed animals and share them with the class.  We also wrote about our stuffed animals.

 Mrs. Bright’s Class,

 

We were very excited to read  your class blog.  After we read your welcome post, we had some questions for you:

1.  What is a prairie?

2.  What did you do on the fun run?

3.  Is the green bug we saw your class pet?

4.  What is rocket math?  It sounds like fun!

5.  What is your literacy special like?

6.  What are Dailies?

We can’t wait to hear back from you!

This week we read the story Jack and Rick.  Our objective said, “I can sequence story events”.  We made character cut-outs and put them on butcher paper to show what happened in the story.  We also took turns writing the story events!

This week, students were working hard reading stories and answering questions.  We read the book, Ants, Ants and More Ants.  After reading the story we went back into the book to find answers to specific questions.  It was definitely hard work, but we perservered, finished our work and learned lots of information about those pesky  little ants.
