The first graders are settling into a routine nicely. We have had two students take home the weather bag already, two students of the week, and we've even had two students fill their sticker charts. In addition to our reading, math, handwriting, and religion, we have been doing a lot of science in the past two weeks. We had two class pets, a small frog and a baby rat snake. We searched and found leaves that were filled with chlorophyll, that were drained of most of their chlorophyll, and that were already dead. We have learned why trees are important and ways we can help not waste products made with trees. With Mrs. Noel's help, we also did experiments to see how sound waves travel.
Here are some important upcoming dates:
Wednesday, September 29th: First grade shops the book fair
Wednesday, September 29th: Mandatory school zoom meeting
Friday, October 7th: Parent/Teacher Conferences - no school (A packet of work will be sent home that week to be completed on that day so that day can be counted as a school day)

Friday, October 21st: Fall Fest
Reading Log Minutes: 10,852
