Primary News ~ 1st Grade

In February and March, we will study United States symbols. We will be studying the following symbols: the American Flag, bald eagle, Statue of Liberty, Uncle Sam, the Capitol, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and the White House. Each student will be given a former President to do a research report on at home followed by a monument creation for that President in class. Coinciding with the NCAA March Madness, we will have our very own “Monument Madness”. Students will be sharing their 2-D monument drawing with the class and voting until one champion remains! It is a load of fun! More information will be coming home in late February.

As the weather warms up, 1st grade is beginning to think about our two annual field trips. We are trying to line up a day at CSU working with the entomology department. We will work with the entomology department looking at scorpions, tarantulas, and black widows oh my! We will also be performing a community outreach project with one of the local retirement centers. Students will be building a bond with seniors, planting a flower, and delivering them to the residents. These field trips will happen in late April and late May. More information will be coming home with your child. Thank you for your continued support of 1st grade.
