January and February Recap

It has been a while since I have posted, but that doesn't mean we haven't been hard at work in first grade. We have been learning about penguins, the history of our Earth, and dinosaurs in between all of our snow days and delays. Let's think spring! Keep reading to see photos of some of our wonderful work.

First up we learned about penguins. We read a variety of non-fiction penguin texts to collect research. We collected facts on our penguin schema chart. Then we used the information to write penguin reports. They are located under our cute penguin pictures. We worked together to write about what penguins eat, how they move, what they are like as babies, and their enemies. We also wrote a class paragraph on penguins.

During our study of the history of the Earth, we had the chance to learn about dinosaurs. We were very excited about this, many students even brought in dinosaurs and wore dinosaur shirts. We read books about dinosaurs, watched a video clip of a real paleontologist that works at the American Museum of Natural History and we worked in small groups to write about some our our favorite dinosaurs.

 I want to give a big THANK YOU for all of my Valentine's that I recieved. I feel quite spoiled.

If the weather cooperates we will be celebrating our 100th day of school on Friday. I can't believe we are more than half way through the year.
