The first grade celebrated Chinese New Year with a day of special activities. We learned that this is the Year of the Pig. We made Chinese dragon puppets and learned how to write Chinese characters. We even had a Lunch and Show. After we ate Chinese food, the 6th graders entertained us with a Dragon Dance. There were drums, cymbals, and a lot of energy. We had an exciting day!
The children had been eagerly anticipating the 100th Day of School. So for the 100th day, we had a celebration with special activities such as making a 100 Fruit Loops necklaces, playing addition games, camouflage the number 100, and making a snow day scene with 100 snowmen. The children read poems about 100. We counted to 100 in different ways. We even read stories about 100. What a fun filled day we had!
Groundhogs (also known as woodchucks) are very interesting animals. Our class learned about this animal, who has its very own holiday. After learning about Groundhog Day and the legend behind it, our class made our own predictions about when spring will arrive. Our class predicted early spring!
