First Grade Welcomes Fall

In the first two weeks of school, first grade scientists learned about the importance of leaves and the shapes and sizes they might be found. Each student chose a leaf from the school playground and did their own leaf rubbing. This was just in time before they farewelled them for the season.
On September 23, 2014, first grade welcomed fall by decorating their classroom with fall symbols, such as the leaves, turkey, pilgrim hats, and cornucopias. They added their first independent creative writing project on what they love about fall. Their stories included many favorites of the season including carving pumpkins and playing in the Fall leaves.
