Dear Families of 1C,
What a great week in 1C! W talked about the UN Sustainable Development Goals all week.
We started off our week with a very special lunch inside our classroom. Students served themselves rice, chicken, broccoli, pineapple, cookies and milk. Most of us chose our food carefully and made sure we had a balanced plate.
Check out our SDG Scavenger Hunt in Math.
Also, we collected and gathered information about everyone’s lunch choices. We graphed what our friends chose to eat and talked about how to make a giant picto-graph together. We even wrote about our food choices during our Literacy centers. We read storybooks with all of our friends and teachers in grade 1 during our morning Read Aloud timing. During Read to Self and Partner Reading time, we read about healthy food and healthy choices in our OUI reading baskets. Students also wrote in their journals about their favorite foods and labeled all of their choices. We looked at the base word “like” at our Word Inquiry Table and added both prefixes and suffixes to it. Students wrote sentences about foods they like and dislike.

A BIG Thank You to Mr. Thomas for coming in and reading a spooky and lovely story to us about Halloween. Love Monster by Rachel Bright is an excellent story and put us in the mood for Halloween. Everyone really enjoyed this storybook. We talked about Dress Up Day which will be on Thursday, October 31st.
We celebrated Bella’s Birthday on Wednesday! We ate some very special ice cream and sang Happy Birthday to Bell in Vietnamese, English and Danish. We wish Bella a very Happy Birthday and a wonderful year ahead.
