Today we celebrated the great job we did making the most money raised in the October pizza fundraiser. We received free pizzas from Papa's! What a great way to celebrate our summer birthdays! PTO also provided juice.
It occurred to me this morning- my first graders have grown into mature little second graders. It doesn't happen overnight, it is a progression of tiny steps, inch by inch. Looking around the room I saw independent self-managers. My little learners were engaged, concentrating on their "jobs".
As each student finished their daily routine, they made excellent choices based on their interest. I am so proud of my class. I can send them to second grade ready to tackle anything. Thank you parents for supporting this journey! I see a bright future for every first grader in room 4.
Room 4 started a geometry unit today in iReady math. We explored sides, corners (angles), and how the shapes fit inside each other = congruence. What a great day in first grade math. We will continue to add and subtract ones and tens while learning all about geometry.
