Miss Roberts First Grade
Our First Grade learning
When we returned from Christmas break we started working on a class book. First, we read a story called "Giraffes Can't Dance" about a giraffe named Gerald who gets frustrated that he can't dance like all of the other animals. By the end of the story he realizes that if he just puts his mind to it and works hard to can achieve whatever he wants. We spent time talking about all the things that are hard for us that we can't do yet. Then we talked about how we may not be able to do it yet, but there are things we can do to help us reach those goals! We hope to have our class book completed soon and students will be able to take turns taking it home to share with their families.
We spent a lot of time learning about Advent in the weeks leading put to Christmas break. We even had an "Advent Angel" visit our classroom. She left a note each day with a different kindness task she wanted the class to complete. The first graders really enjoyed spreading kindness around the school and learning about Advent.
