Procedures and Plants


We have been working really hard in our literacy block writing simple procedures using key words, such as first, then, next and finally. Visitors to our classroom cannot believe the writing that 1F students are doing. Wait until you see the food chains that we painted and wrote about. They are sensational!! and will come home after we finish showing them off in the hallway.

While we were studying plants in our Characteristics of Living Things Science Unit we decided to make some procedure videos to teach others how to conduct an experiment, "Can a bean seed grow without soil?" Watch out Hollywood, some talented actors and actresses are on their way!

During the past couple of weeks we have been learning about the steps involved in writing a letter. Our final task was to write a letter to someone "special" for an upcoming celebration:} I am sure you will be equally impressed with the quality of these letters.

In Science, we have been looking at the needs and characteristics of living things so we decided that a living thing would make for an appropriate Mother's Day gift. I am hopeful that our "living things" survived the bus ride home.

Mrs. Woodruff taught the students a song for Mother's Day that we'd like to share with you.

Thanks again for the recipes and all of the wonderful samples. Our April "Show-n-Share" was definitely a yummy highlight of our day!

Happy Mother's Day!
