Click Magazine

Our classroom magazine subscription is to the Click science magazine.  Each issue is filled with so many great articles and we enjoy reading them.  This February’s issue is about germs and the kids had a blast reading about how our bodies protect us from germs.

Check out the Click magazine link to explore some of the online activities connected to this issue, your kids will have a blast!

The end of January already!

The studetns are growing and maturing in so many ways.  After last week’s revision museum and this week’s reading celebration…these students are showing so much growth and ability for first graders.  We had a blast experimenting with different forms of matter this week.  Check out some of the books we have been reading on my blog bookshelf to the right of the screen.

Please check out the work the students have been up to in our weekly newsletter:

Our Christmas vacation time was so much fun. I got to spend wonderful time with my family and I enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you so much for all the generous gifts you showered on me before and after break! I am so thankful to have such a supportive group of families to work with and such astounding first graders. Thanks for making my job a rewarding one!

We had such a busy week getting back into routine. We are nearly halfway through the school year and it is fun to see how much growth the students have had since Kindergarten and how much is still on the way.
