CURRICULUM NIGHT HIGHLIGHTS


Thursday Night was Curriculum Night at South.  The parents are invited to the classroom to hear about all the exciting things we have planned for the school year.  We introduce the curriculum and how the parents can help their child at home.  

After we the presentation, the parents and students followed a BINGO choice board to choose what the station they would like to visit. The choice board activities show the parents what their child is learning in reading, math, writing and technology.  They played math games, read books, videoed themselves reading and counting to 150.  They read  some stories they wrote from their writing journal and showed them how to tap out words from Letter Land.  It was a great way to see what their child is learning in school.







OUR 1ST GRADE CLASS HAS BEEN BUSY!


Our class loves to play math games.  After our daily math minilesson, the students go to math stations.  They may play a partner game, work at the teachers table to reinforce what we are learning, play a game that aligns with standard being taught or practicing a skill independently.  



We keep a brisk pace in math in order to fit in the minilesson, number talks and math stations.  They work very hard and math stations are fun and an engaging way to learn.

Our Zoo Field Trip




















We had an awesome time at the zoo.  Our favorite animal to see was the polar bear.  He was such a magnificent presence!  We were all in love with them as soon as we saw them.   We got to see seals, elephants, apes, otters, arctic foxes just to name a few.  It was a beautiful day and we had lots of parents who joined us for the trip.  We really appreciated the help.  I can say that we were all exhausted when we got back on the bus.  We had a great time and all the kiddos loved seeing the animals have been researching for an Arctic Animal Project we are doing in class.  Seeing them in real life made all the difference in the world.  It was a great day!

100th Day Of School




















     We celebrated 100 Days of school!  We counted, graphed, built, painted, drew pictures, ate snacks, wrote stories and took photos.  100 Day was so much fun!  We had different stations with all sorts of fun things to do.  Station 1 was building something using 100 shapes. Station 2 was painting 100 gum balls in the gumball machine.  Station 3 was sorting, counting and graphing their 100 Day Mix.  They got to eat the mix after they finished graphing and posting what they did on seesaw.  Station 4 was having their photo taken using the old age app and writing about their photo.  Station 5 was playing Race to 100 with a partner.  We actually had 2 more stations, but we couldn’t get them all finished in one day.  100 Day carried over a few days so we could finish all of our stations.  It was a great way to reinforce math skills in such a fun way.
