Spring in Room 327

A look at this semester's activities!

Our class takes Houston with Ms. Jackson in tow!

Our class is taking this city by storm during these spring showers. We are so busy working on new lessons and activities while absorbing all that this season has to offer. We are working on a new lesson in geography and science by learning about the animal kingdom in Africa! These animals are hard to find in Houston, but easy to spot during a trip to the zoo.

Take a look at this retro 1st grade classroom!

African Wildlife

Room 327 is taking a safari through Africa and learning about some of the rare and endangered species. In order to help spark your student's interest, try reading bed time stories with rhinos, elephants, or other African wildlife species. We're going to learn more about these animals, their ecosystems, and their niches.
