I cannot believe we are already at the end of our first nine weeks of school. We have been busy, busy, busy learning about all things fall. Our first grade team does an apple switch at the end of September. We then go to the apple orchard where the kids get to pick some apples, a gourd, and go through a corn maze. We finished our day off with lunch at the park.
We are finishing up a bat unit right now. We started with a K-W-L chart to get the students to think about what they already know about bats. With our non-fiction bat books we worked on character analysis. The students LOVED Stellaluna. With the nonfiction texts we worked on targeting the new information they were learning. They responded to this by writing two interesting facts they learned about bats.
