Mrs. Peelman’s Class
The first graders in Mrs. Peelman’s class have learned about car, bus, fire, and Internet safety in Health these last few weeks of schools. Our favorite was learning about fire safety and how to use the Internet safely. Our first grade Soaring Cardinals know how to stay safe!
Mrs. Kelly’s Class
The scientists in Mrs. Kelly’s class have been learning about rocks and their attributes. They were able to look at rocks in depth using a magnifying glass. Then, they were then able to apply what they learned by sorting characteristics that described their rocks. The students really enjoyed this hands-on activity. We really have some SUPER SCIENTISTS in first grade.
Mrs. Kirkley’s Class
The first graders in Mrs. Kirkley’s class have been learning how to use the classroom library. They are learning how independent reading works and how to build stamina as readers. Studies have shown that independent reading is the best way to get students to make gains (Serravallo). Continue to READ, READ, READ at home boys and girls!
