News from Room 124
Our first full week of first grade!
A Note From Ms. Montgomery
We all made it...and we're still smiling! We have had a great start to our year. This week we have focused really on our classroom culture and community. We are still getting to know one another and learn names and fun facts. We are a team and a team does their best when you know about the people around us. Paper bag shares have been happening, morning meetings include getting to know you chants and games, and we've been learning some math games with partners! Some quick little assessments have been put out to the kiddos and these activities are helping me to figure out where everyone is and what their needs are. I think our favorite times of the day have been read aloud times, I mean, after recess of course! Our classroom is filled with fantastic readers!
Wishing you all a happy weekend!

Getting to Know Each Other
One of our first challenges as a first grader was to figure out how to make our self portrait...
.....a picture of our cute little faces. WITHOUT USING SCISSORS! We could use construction paper and glue, but no scissors.
We quickly learned we were all born with a special pair of scissors....our fingers! Tear Art Self Portraits 2014 were created and created beautifully! Any of these kiddos look familiar to you??
Expectations in First Grade
Matthew thinks it's important that we pay attention to the teacher.
To help us understand and make sense of the importance of expectations, we read David Goes to School by David Shannon.
Lola thinks it's important to be quiet in the hallway.
