Optional Artist Research Project

Over the next 4 Fridays an index card will be sent home with an artist's name on it. If your child would like to participate they may research with you to come up with at least 3 interesting facts about the chosen artist. They can return the index card anytime the following week and present their facts in front of the class. This is a wonderful opportunity to developed research and public speaking skills. Today, look for the index card with Georgia O'Keeffe on it. Enjoy!

120th DAY

On Thursday, March 16th we will celebrate the 120th day of school. It will be filled with fun counting activities. Please send in 120 items that can fit in a zip lock bag. They need to be either the same items or the same theme and NO food items. Ex: buttons, tiles, rubber bands, pencils, etc. These items will not be returned and will add to the first grade counting bin. Thanks!
