I heard many stories of your wonderful Thanksgiving adventures. Sounds like some magical family memories! Although our week was short last week, we packed a lot of learning in! The First Graders worked hard to create a paper Mayflower complete with facts of the journey. Each student finished their narrative writing pieces on a pilgrim child’s voyage on the Mayflower. I hope you enjoyed reading these amazing works created by your First Grader. I certainly did! I am impressed by their hard work and the quality of writing. Finally we headed down to the science lab to visit Ms. Yuhas to learn about how the Mayflower was able to float. The lab was divided into 4 parts of investigation, including weight distribution, design a boat with foil, design a boat with clay and then design a boat with a sail. The First Graders learned about buoyancy and the importance of boat design in relation to buoyancy. More fun times in the science lab! We ended our week with a wonderful Thanksgiving party. Thanks to our room moms!DSCN3256DSCN3261DSCN3267DSCN3270DSCN3273DSCN3282DSCN3284DSCN3285

The First Graders who lead the school in prayer today at Monday Morning Assembly did a stellar job! Although each First Grader was nervous to read, they found the courage to be brave and did it! Our class will be leading the coming Mondays as well. Each First Grader is given the opportunity to volunteer. Please check Friday Folders to see if your child has volunteered!DSCN3288DSCN3291
