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!
After reading chapter 8 in Marty Mcguire, our class decided it would be fun to create our own improvisational sculpture garden. Check out our amazing videos!
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.
This week we are reading chapter 4 in Marty Mcguire. We decided it would be fun to come up with titles for each of the chapters! We are also looking forward to learning more about Jane Goodall and frogs!
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!
We are in Mrs. Del Rosa’s 1st grade class. We live in Apache Junction, Arizona. There are 29 students in our class. We love reading Marty Mcguire and can’t wait to meet 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.
This year we have been having Morning Meetings. This is something new for us this year and it has taken a few weeks to get into the routine. We are sharing something we did well yesterday and something we can do better today. Although we are still struggling a little, it is getting easier and the students are starting to lead our discussions!
