Cowboys, Cowgirls and Surgeons

During OW and OU week, we came in dressed as cowboys and cowgirls to help the ow sound to really sink in! 

On the same day, we were treated to a catered lunch from Olive Garden for being the class that collected the most coins for Pennies For Pasta which helps cancer research.  We dined on pasta, salad and the kid's favorite.....bread sticks.  Thanks Olive garden!

Here are some cowgirls working with 3D shapes.

Our next dress up adventure happened today as we became contraction surgeons.  A great big thank you goes to BRAYCES for donating the masks and gloves.  With some dollar store adhesive strips and some paper bones we were ready to cut and contract!

Loving all this first grade fun!!!!!!

So far in May

May has been super busy so far.  We have been writing opinion pieces in Writer's Workshop.  We tasted regular (vanilla) Oreos and mint Oreos to see which one we liked best.  We had to state our opinion and give three reasons to support our opinion.  Check us out.....
Kate gets to try both.                  Kyle is seriously thinking about it.

Jaedyn and Livia dig right in!

And vanilla Oreo wins!

               The kids did an excellent job writing this time!!!!
