April 14th, 2017

It has been a very busy week in first grade!

On Wednesday, we had a guest speaker from Second Chance come to our classroom and tell us about their organization and how it helps animals who don't have a "forever home."  We met one of the pups that has been rescued and the kiddos loved getting to meet Louie the dog!  Please consider sending in a donation for our pet supplies drive! 
Thank you in advance!

On Thursday, we had a visit from Flash the Timberwolf and a PTA representative talking to us about the 1st annual BEU circus! Please check your child's Friday Folder for lots of information regarding this event. Thank you to the parents who have donated to our classroom basket! We have some really cool things to put in the basket so far!

Friday was our field trip to The Runge in Jefferson City!  We had lots of fun walking the trails and learning about a variety of animals that live in Missouri!  Here are a few pictures from our fun learning day!

Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Our learning today was themed around lots of St. Patrick's Day fun!!  In math, we reviewed our graphing skills by graphing the marshmallows in Lucky Charms!  After we graphed, we got to enjoy a fun snack!

We also finished the writing prompt "I feel lucky when...."  It cracks me up reading all of the creative and silly things these 1st graders write.  After our writing, we made cute little Shamrock people to hang up on our classroom door.

We also had a blast on our field trip to the Daniel Boone Regional Library!  We had a wonderful tour guide that showed us all around the library and talked to us about all of the neat things the library has to offer.  We even got to tour the 3rd floor, which was VERY exciting to these firsties!  What an awesome view from way up there!

Important Dates:

March 21st - 1st Grade Music Program  (starts at 6:30 - don't forget to wear blue!)

March 27th - March 31st - Spring Break (No school)

April 7th (1st Grade kicks off our service learning project) - look for a flyer in your child's Friday folder that afternoon!

Pizza Party!

Mrs. Van Cleave from Nutrition Services joined our class on Tuesday morning to teach us about nutrition!  We learned so much about the different food groups and got to make our very own healthy pizzas!  This was a ton of fun and we all enjoyed eating our delicious snack!

Valentine's Day Party!

We had a fantastic time at our Valentine's Day party!  Thank you Alyson O'Donnell for planning all of our parties this year!  You Rock!!!  Also, thank you to all of the parents who donated party supplies and goodies!  The kiddos had an awesome time!

100th Day Celebration!

On Tuesday, we celebrated our 100th day of First Grade!  We had such a fun filled day of learning!  Here are some pics of our special day!

All of the first grade classes added to our 100 reasons why we love BEU and First Grade wall art!

We wrote about what we thought we would be doing when we are 100 years old!  We also used an app called AgingBooth that showed us what we would look like when we are 100 years old!  The kids thought this was HYSTERICAL!!!!
Trent being a good sport! :)

We counted how many licks it takes to eat a Tootsie Pop!  Well over 100 licks for sure!  The challenge was to not bite into it!

Lastly, we had an assembly to celebrate Mrs. Beulah Ralph's 90th birthday!  We heard from Mrs. Ralph's daughter, Mrs. Naylor, who told us many awesome things about Beulah Ralph!  Thank you to all the parents who donated supplies to a Columbia Shelter in honor of Beulah Ralph!

After the assembly, we celebrated in our classroom with cupcakes provided by the PTA!  What an awesome day!!
