First Week Fun
Push play to hear a special message!
All of my little monkeys seemed to have a great first week of school. Were they as tired as I was?
We spent the week learning our routines and procedures, reading lots of jungle animal and back to school books, working on the story of 4, practicing fire drills and even made a science sticker scene. It looks like we might get to practice our severe weather drill on Monday thanks to Isaac. Beware, the first grade hallway floods!
The students are doing a great job bringing their folders and backpacks to school everyday. The binders will start coming home after Labor Day. Since our special area schedule changes weekly and we have playtime every day, it is important that students wear sneakers to school daily. Helping your child learn how to tie their shoes will save us a LOT of time throughout the day;-).
Siloh visited our classroom on Saturday. He saw all of the fun things we did and really wants to be a first grader! Here is a picture of him at the Reading Area.
After a couple of hours he need a nap!
I will take lots more pictures of our activities next week to share with you. If you start "following" our blog, you get a notification when new things are posted. Click the blue "Join this site" button to the left.
