We studied Johnny Appleseed all week. We labeled parts of an apple, we ordered the steps of an apple tree's life cycle, and we even had apple treats. We had lots of fun learning, but I think the best part was making homemade applesauce together!
First grade did wonderfully today when Mayor McDonald came to talk about his role in our community. We have been learning all about different important leaders and community helpers and he was the perfect guest speaker to enhance these lessons. Students developed their own questions and listened attentively to learn about different ways Mayor McDonald helps to make Bartlett such an awesome place to live. What a great experience!
The Harvest Treat was a blast!! All the children decorated their own cookies, had festive cupcakes, treat bags, and designed their own leaves. Our fabulous classroom assistant, Mrs. Garrard, created a wreath for our classroom out of all the leaves and even decorated the room for our party. Mrs. House's Happy Campers are loving first grade!!
