Last week we began a new math unit on measurement. First graders measured many different classroom objects like books, folders, and glue bottles. They measured with different nonstandard units including linker cubes, paper clips and tiles. Today students measured fish! They had a very specific mission - to figure out whether or not their fish were long enough to be "keepers". Students worked very hard to measure carefully and accurately to determine which perch, mackerel and alewife fish should be kept or tossed back!

Well, we did it! First graders have successfully completed all five missions that they were challenged with! The S.S.D.A. Even sent official badges to them!

Last week first graders learned about Martin Luther king, Jr. through reading some books and by going to a school wide assembly. After leaning about Dr. King's important work and his life's dream, first graders wrote their own dream for the world in which we live. We can learn a lot from their dreams!
