First grade celebrated a Reading Week by reading and studying Dr. Seuss and 5 of his amazing books. We began our week with There’s a Wocket in my Pocket where students created and wrote about different creatures living in their pockets.
We also read The Lorax and used our own voices to speak for different living things in our world. When we read If I Ran the Zoo, we learned about an imaginary zoo and we made masks to create our own “First Grade Zoo” filled with many different made up animals!
On Thursday when we read Bartholomew and the Oobleck, we made oobleck in our classroom and discussed if it was a solid or a liquid. Finally, we read Oh, the Places You’ll Go! and we wrote about the different things we wanted to do and see when we get older.
The first Grade brought in their favorite stuffed animals to read to
Come in and check out our bulletin board outside our classroom. It is amazing to see how much they have progressed in their writing!
