In social studies we have been learning about families and traditions we have. We invited several teachers and other faculty members at our school into the classroom to tell us their family stories. Then we told our own using iMovie.
Listen to the story of our favorite family tradition!
In our Farm to Table unit, the students learned that everything we use must come from somewhere. During this unit we made playdough and wrote How To books using BookPress. Click on the books below to read our books. See if you can follow our directions to make playdough at home!

The first graders went on a field trip to Harvest Baking this week! We learned about the different ingredients used to make bread. We also rolled some dough into bread and tasted the delicious bread! Please ask your child about which ingredients are used to make bread and where those ingredients come from.
The iPads have been in our classroom for the past couple of weeks, and we are excited to finally share our projects. The students have been working very hard researching and learning about animals from all over the world. We used online resources and books to learn about the animals and their habitats. We organized the information we gathered and created digital books using my new favorite app, bookPress. The students learned how to add text, pictures, change fonts and create lay-outs for their all about books.
