How To Projects

We have completed our How To projects. I am so excited about the technology we have integrated into this project and I am happy to be able to share it with you. The kids made a "glog" on a website called Glogster. Then we created a QR code for each of their "glogs". Today we used our ipads to go around and see each others glogs by scanning their QR code.

I'm going to send home a paper tomorrow for you to get to try it out as well. Be looking for a paper that has an image that looks similar to the one here on the right. You will need to download a free "QR reader" or scanner from the app store (the kids should be able to help you with this). Then all you have to do is open the app and scan the QR code to view their work! You can send this QR code to family and friends and they can view it as well! If you have any problems or have any questions, please let me know!

Make a $10 (or more) donation to Johnny's Place and enjoy a pancake breakfast before school this Friday. Wear your PJs to school (or purple-Johnny's favorite color) if you'd like to join other friends in the cafeteria. All money raised goes towards a memorial garden for 2nd grader Johnny O'Leary.

To reserve your spot, return the purple order form from your Friday Folder by May 7th. You can write a check, send cash, or use your DineRite number.

First Grade End of the Year Picnic

Friday, May 24th, 10:30am to Saturday, May 25th, 12:30pm

Bradfield West Playground

Mark your calendars... First grade is having a picnic! The kids will bring a sack lunch and enjoy a picnic outside on the sport court. All parents are invited to attend. After the kids are done eating, they will have time to play "yard games" out on the soccer field with their parents and friends.

Would anyone like to volunteer to bring Popsicles for the class to enjoy during their picnic that day?

Would anyone like to volunteer to bring a cooler of water bottles for the kids as they play?

Email me back if you would like to volunteer! :)

Happy Birthday!
