This time of year I always look forward to students' writing about snowy adventures in the woods, building snow sculptures that go with our solids and liquids unit, and using Doppler radar to track winter storms. This year is a bit different, but we've been working hard on so many fun, engaging projects we've barley noticed that autumn doesn't seem to end!
Here are some pictures that highlight the last two weeks! Please share them with your first grader to see how they describe our latest investigations.
Encyclopedias are pretty fun!
Solids and properties.
Planning our model city.
The final product. - town hall, police/fire/medical center, school, riverside park, library, grocery with small farm/roof garden. ...I'd live here!
Thank you to the amazing Shylah for making individual necklaces and bracelets for all of us!
Happy Friday. There's so much to be thankful for.

Lots of wonderful learning and exploration has been enjoyed in first grade this month. It's flown by so fast, it's hard to believe vacation starts this week!
Here are some highlights for you to enjoy with your first grader over the break. Try using them as conversation starters!
Finally, Mrs. Black and I would like to thank you all so much for sharing your amazing children with us each day. We truly feel so very lucky to be a part of their learning, and appreciate to no end all that you do at home to make this group of children kind, happy, and curious about the world.
May your holiday bring you and your family peace and love and a super happy new year.

Thanks for all that you do to be great parents. I met with each of you this week, and enjoyed every minute of it. Your perspective is so powerful and sharing your little ones' work is something I enjoy tremendously.
Here are a few pics from the last two weeks. Share them with your first grader and let them provide the context.
