This week the students read a biography about Dr. Seuss. It was our weekly Journeys story and it focused on questioning and text and graphic features. We are learning how to use pictures and words to help tell a story. On Monday we “celebrated” the 50th day of school by thinking about our future and what we will be like when we are 50 years old. In writing workshop we wrote stories about our futures! Some of us want to be chefs while others want to be Monkey Farmers!! It was entertaining to read the stories and see how they envision their lives in the future.
On our field trip we visited an old school house as well as a country store, a doctor’s office and an assay’s office. The docent was very impressed with the first grader’s prior knowledge on the subject matter. They asked thoughtful questions and were very well behaved.
