First Grade is in full swing and we are off to a fantastic start to the school year! It is inspiring to be part of The Woods Academy as we begin our learning together. We are all excited to get to know one another especially since we are not together in person just yet. We are reading great books, including Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. Our class talked about friendship and what it takes to be a great friend. We created flowers with our names on them during our live literacy group via Zoom!
We are also celebrating a Star Student each week. Star Student gives everyone in first grade a chance to shine. Here, students have an opportunity to share photos and personal mementos. This activity helps our students to demonstrate leadership skills and celebrate our individuality.
