March of the Penguins!

As a culminating activity for our measuring unit first graders made life sized penguins!  They each chose the type they wanted to make (out of four: rockhopper, chinstrap, little blue, or emperor), filled out a fact sheet on them, and then got to work measuring a length of string that would be used to ensure that their paper penguin was the accurate real-life height.  After the creations were completed first graders went on a penguin March to the office to share them with Mr. White!  

Happy Valentine's Day!

First graders enjoyed a fun Valentine's Day celebration today!  Thank you to everyone who was able to help provide some treats for them!!

New Word of the Week

Our W.O. W. (word of the week) this week was compassionate. First graders learned what it means to be compassionate by listening to the true story, Pierre the Penguin.  Ask your child what happened to Pierre and who showed him compassion, and in turn saved his life. 

P. P. P. Day!!

It was a fun "pirate, prince, princess day" at RES today!  We decided that pirates, princes, and princesses come in many different looks so it really doesn't matter what you're wearing - you could be any or all three at once!
