1st Grade REACH News!!!

We've had a ball in first grade REACH! The students have been wonderful! They've worked so hard, and learned so much! We met Dudley the Detective, Isabel the Inventor, and Yolanda the Yarnspinner from Crystal Pond Woods! Each of these characters helped us learn to think in a different way! We are in the middle of a Dr. Seuss unit that is based on the Williams Scale of Creative Thinking. Today, we did an awesome STEM activity to help the gingerbread man cross the river! I'd like to share some memories of first grade REACH with you! I've loved working with your child, and I look forward to the rest of the year!
