First Grade Happenings
Week of March 21, 2016
A Note from Mrs. Messer
Have a great weekend!
We 're in the BV News!
Our study of Ezra Jack Keats continues as we will complete a few projects associated with some of the books we've read together. We'll explore a favorite art medium used by Mr. Keats for the illustrations in many of his books--collage! The students' artwork will be on display in our classroom for parent-teacher conferences.
In writing, we will turn our attention to another type of review next week-- a book review! We will be using many of the same elements we used in our previous reviews, but adding a few more.
This week we kicked off our study of the great state of Minnesota! We started by creating a map of our state. We identified various points of interest and named the states that share our borders. We will continue to take a closer look at Minnesota by examining some architectural elements of our state capitol building. Do you know the significance of the gold leafed copper and steel quadriga on the roof of the building? Next week your student will!
