Mrs. Ginn's First Grade
1st Graders at the Wildlife Rescue in Petaluma
What a field trip! We were able to see: mountain lions, wolf dogs, coyotes, raccoons, a bobcat, goats, and more! Students played several habitat games and acted out "rescues" of animals. Thank you to all the volunteers for helping make this trip such a success. The trip tied in perfectly to our current science unit. Your child might want to return to the Wildlife Rescue for a family visit.
I HAVE MORE PHOTOS! THESE ARE JUST A FEW!
The Spring Show was a success. Thank you all for coming. The kids did a fantastic job and looked great.

INFORMATION ON THIS EVENT WENT HOME TODAY.
In Math, we just took our end of unit 6 test and will be starting unit 7 this week.
We have just completed our Personal Narrative Writing. It is published on our writing wall. This has been an involved process: brain storming topic ideas, completing a graph organizer for topic sentence and details, also working on naming nouns (adding specific details). We will now be working hard on publishing stories for the Occidental Young Writer's Showcase. The Showcase is an event that is hosted in June on campus.
We have begun our new Foss Science Unit on Plants and Animals. Last week we focused on animal habitats. We played a game in which we sorted different animal picture cards and placed them into the correct habitat based on adaptations.
We just changed desks last week!
Garden cooking and classes are back in full swing.
We will have our Earth Day celebration in Sandy Flats hosted by Mrs. Newman in the forest on Thursday after recess.
Mr. Jones rewards classes for great behavior in the computer lab. We just earned a popcorn party last Friday.
