Wow, we had the best first day of X-Country skiing!! The kids did so well! No tears, and NOT whining!! We all used our Growth Mindset and did our best! Thanks to the awesome parents that came to help... we could not do it without you!!
Spellbinders Story teller, Aya (aka: Sarah Jane)
We are so lucky to have our amazing story Aya come once per month to tell themed stories to us!! We usually have another class join us. Aya tells jokes, plays the guitar and sings. This month she told us some great holiday stories! She used to teach school...so she is so great with the kiddos and they love listening!!
Aiden was our wizard last week!! He taught us about Magnets and how they have poles. We also learned about iron shavings and discovered that if we put a magnet in our sand box we can collect iron shavings!!
Also...did you know our EARTH is a giant magnet? Do you have a compass? If you put a magnet on it it will point toward your magnet, just like if you use the compass to find north...
We had such a great time baking Gingerbread the last few days. Thursday we baked! Gingerbread has 12 ingredients and a lot of steps. We had to double the recipe and so that was some tricky math!! We shared all the fun with Miss Jill's class too!
Then Friday, we got to decorate and have fun in our classroom with our friends from Jill's class!
Welcome to First Grade!
