Short Vowel Words
The 1st Grade is conjuring up some short vowel ‘a’ words like ‘bat’, keeping our Halloween theme. The students created pictures and cut them out to hang up around the classroom. They had a lot of fun with this activity.
Creating Spooktacular Pumpkins
The 1st Grade had a spooktacular time making pumpkins on Halloween. The students used many different pieces of materials to create their pumpkins. To create the pumpkins, the students stuffed brown paper bags with newspaper and then painted the bags orange to look like pumpkins. After painting the bags the students painted their own unique faces onto them with black paint. The students had a lot of fun with this activity.
With Halloween right around the corner, the 1st Grade worked on investigating what is inside of a pumpkin. Each student was given a pre cut pumpkin to begin their investigation. The students would look and feel the pumpkins to see what is inside of them and what type of texture a pumpkin has. The students really enjoyed investigating their pumpkins.
First Day “Jitters”
First Grade is getting rid of its first day of school ‘jitters’ by making potions of ‘jitter juice.’ Creating the “jitter juice” was a lot of fun for the students. Every student took turns making their own potion of ‘jitter juice.’ The students had a lot of fun and were able to get all of their first day “jitters” out of their system.
