New School Year

Well we are off & running in 1st grade!!!!!  I have the sweetest little class (well 22) but they are eager everyday to learn....which I love.  We have done many back to school activities, including Jitter Juice, Chicka Chicka, Boom Boom & learning about Thinking about our thinking while we are reading (Metacognition).  We even made a Real Reading Salad....can't wait for this week when we do another reading salad & start learning about characters in stories & their characteristics.  So take a look at our week in pictures!!!!

Magnet we made the first day....since I have a pirate theme we took pics in a pirate hat.  Then added the cute poem for them to take home & hang their artwork throughout the year.  Great Pinterest idea!!!!

Math Tub time.....doing Mystery Bags
