Making Slime!


To kick off our new writing unit of study, we followed the directions in the How to Make Slime book.  We had fun making and exploring the slime!

Field Trips


A note about field trips.  After our field trip to the Hartje center on October 8, we only have two more field trips for the rest of first grade.  I’m sure it seems like we go on a lot of field trips!  This year, our theater field trip was early.  We will be snowshoeing in the winter and will have another outdoor adventure in the spring.  Thank you to those who volunteered at the apple orchard.

Oakwood Fruit Farm


We had a wonderful time exploring and touring Oakwood Fruit Farm.  The weather was ideal!  Children learned how apples are picked and packaged to be sold.  We also got to taste grapes and look at apple trees.  Students had apple cider donuts and apple cider for snack when we returned!  Pictures coming soon!
