We went to Winkler Park on May 11th to finish out our plants unit. The kids had so much fun looking at all the different kinds of plants that grow throughout the park. We also got to see animals in their natural habitats, such as frogs, squirrels, and lots of spiders! Pictures at the bottom!
MIRP DAY 2012
First Grade celebrated a beautiful spring morning by heading outside for our first ever MIRP Day~ The children were assigned partners and got to read to each other out on the basketball court outside the school. They very much enjoyed reading outside and working with students from other classes. It's a nice change of pace and scenery and the children LOVED it!
Field Day 2012
First grade had a wonderful time on Field Day, June 7th. They participated in a water relay, soccer kick, egg relay, walking in "big feet", as well as a dizzy bat competition. Fun was had by all. Although our class did not place first, we were gracious non-winners, and enjoyed an afternoon of treats in the classroom!
