First graders started the process of making friendship necklaces this past Friday. They each rolled, shaped and put holes through 17 beads. On Monday they will decorate them, and on Tuesday, our last day together in first grade, they will give each of their classmates one of their beads. They will each then string them together to make their friendship necklace.

We did our final observation of our plants experiment and our verdict is... Plants do need light to grow and thrive! After three weeks of giving one plant everything it needs to thrive, and one plant everything EXCEPT light, we could see a big difference in how our two plants looked. We all felt badly "hurting" one of our plants, but it's all in the name of science!!

First graders were very successful at convincing each other to try or do something new because they write such convincing opinion pieces! They listened to many of their friends pieces of writing, and then wrote about at least one piece that really convinced them to try something.
