1st Grade Project

Third quarter (home) project: 

 

It is time to begin the recycle robot projects.

 

Save some boxes, bins, bottles, and

cans to construct a fun robot.

 

It does not need batteries or welding. 

 

It can be kid-powered, and put together with wires or duct tape.

 

It is due on February 18th.

 

There will be no regular share on that week as kids will be showing their robots.

 

In class, students will write a story about their robot and make an illustration.

The educational emphasis of this project is ...

 

science-simple machines and technology, social- presenting / inventing,

and environment- recycling and reusing.

 

There is a notice on your child's folder with more information.

 

Enjoy the sunshine.  🌞

Good Evening First Grade Families,

book about a character named Flat Stanley.  

Flat stanley is able to be folded and sent in an envelope

a family friend or relative in another state in the USA.  

Fill out the form with an address in another state. 

Your first grader will write a letter with Stanley enclosed.  

The recipients will be able to show Stanley sight seeing

in another State, He will be sent back to us with 

information about another place.  We will mark our

USA map and learn about other states.  

We can also give my school e-mail address if recipients

want to send their messages and photos on-line.  

Thank  you for your participation. 

We will begin the project in the new year.

On a warm afternoon with some tired bodies, we had a rest or choice time.   Students were able to relax and be calm and cool.  Sometimes they like to be sprayed with cool water from a spritzer bottle.

Yours in Christ,
