Mrs. Ginn's First Grade
Garden Party Today 1-4pm!
We will be painting our Auction Art items tomorrow. Please send your child in play clothes. We will try not to get our clothes full a paint...but you know how that goes!
We are hard at work in first grade...Occidental Young Writer's stories and poems, nature journals, dragon stories, animal reports, native plant study, and much more!
This week in garden students harvested fava, pulled weeds, and shoveled/moved wood chips.
We began our unit on Native plants, trees, animals, and insects from our place here at Harmony. Miss Kristen, our PBL teacher on campus came Thursday. We are working with her to add to the Dragon Playground. The kids are concerned about the tagging of a few trees in that area, so she has invited Harold, a local naturalist that tagged the trees to come in and explain the plan he has for taking care of our forest on May 3rd. We are also nature journaling. Point out these trees and see if your child can identify them: madrone, bay, tan oak, redwood, live oak.
We started typing club last week. To access at home, go to the Harmony Website, go to student resources, then to symbaloo. Ginn Typing icon will be on screen. Username and password is the same as Lexia (lower case first name and first letter of last name
