Today is grandparents day. We are painting pictures in the classroom.I am painting my pawpaw robbie. It was fun.It was friday. My teacher is ms Mcclure. We liked painting the pictures .The End.
Our first days of first grade were a blast! On the first day, we spent some time getting calming our jitters with a story called First Day Jitters. Then, we read a poem called Jitter Juice and enjoyed some real jitter juice to calm our nerves! During math time, we practice counting to 120 with a song and a 120 chart puzzle, which will later become our first math center.
In the afternoon, we started learning about Daily 5, the reading structure we will use for the entire year. The first Daily 5 choice we learned about is Read to Self. Before practicing, we discussed the 3 ways to read a book. Then, we started practicing our stamina. Ask your child what the word stamina means!
Each column on our stamina chart (above right) represents a practice session. We use a new color every day so we can see how much better our stamina is with each day that we practice.
On the first day of our first full week, we enjoyed celebrating a piece of American history by watching a live feed of the solar eclipse while making our own models. Check it out below!

We've been learning all about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and Leaders this year! As part of our school-wide initiative to teach all Parkside students about the 7 Habits and incorporate them into our lives, Mrs. Hayes has been featuring a class each week to teach other students in the building about a habit. Our class was chosen to teach Habit 3: Put First Things First. Check out our video below!
With the return of the holidays, we have begun learning about place value to prepare for adding two digit numbers. We started with building teen numbers to gain a better understanding of the number 10. Then, we started building bigger numbers and comparing them. Check out our videos below!
With Thanksgiving being two days away, we took some time to celebrate all of the things we are thankful for spend some time together as a "school family".
We started our day by making pumpkin pie in a cup.
Then, we decorated the tablecloth for our Thanksgiving feast.
Next, we dressed in our best indian and pilgrim costumes and began our feast of pizza!
Of course, we had to "do a cheers" to the best Thanksgiving ever!
