Red Ribbon Week, The Great Wall of China, and More!

We have been so busy! The last two Fridays we didn't get the chance to write our usual posts as a class, but here's a quick update for you!

We wrapped up our study of Asia, but not before learning all about the Great Wall of China! The kids even got to build their own Great Walls!
We learned new signal words!

These awesome readers found even MORE information about the Great Wall of China and orangutans.

Lorenzo's dad was our mystery reader and read Little Boo and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole.

We visited second grade's Market Day.

We read Dogs Don't Wear Sneakers and Chimps Don't Wear Glasses, both by Laura Numeroff. Then we made our own list of funny animal sentences and the kids made lists in their notebooks.
(Fun fact: Tiny monkeys DO ride around on dogs in between innings at baseball games. The first graders didn't believe me...)

The pigeon helped us with punctuation.

We celebrated Red Ribbon Week and talked all week long about making healthy choices for our minds and bodies.

And we had a super fun Halloween celebration! Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered and donated supplies!

I also want to share that I had an amazing week of parent-teacher conferences. I am so grateful to get to spend this year with such a supportive group of parents. No wonder these kids are so great! :)

Thanks for reading! Leave a comment for us to read!
