Last Day of First Grade 2013




 We were surprised by two visitors from the the town of Mozzarella on the last day of school. One was Vincent Van Dough and the other was Leonardo Da Munchi. They had a problem. Vincent's pizza has delicious dough and Leonardo's has superior sauce. After some arguing, they came to the conclusion that joining forces would made for an excellent pizza all around. Lourdes and Randy Smith did an awesome job keeping the children entertained with the book, "The Great Pizza Contest" by Riley Roam.




 Listening and watching "The Great Pizza Contest."
 Students would join in the fun -- if they liked "sauce" better or "dough."
Vincent was trying to persuade the children to like dough better than sauce.

All of the students had a special treat waiting after the skit -- pizza bagel bites.  What a wonderful way to end their first grade year. Thank you Lourdes and Randy for closing the "Mall-ard" diner so memorably!!

Preparing for Second Grade



 As summer is fast approaching, we would like to offer some helpful hints about the next grade level. One of which is a list of summer preparation games and activities that one of our seasoned second grade teachers (Mrs. McLeod) prepared. You will find Reading, Skills, Writing, Math and Science activities. We strongly suggest that you utilize this site so that your child's learning will continue during this "down" time. It will pay off and the transition into second grade will be much easier. Remember to bring books on trips. A Magic Tree House adventure will help pass the time while waiting for a plane. Make sure there are books in the car and the beach bag. Please do not make "getting out your book" a punishment. Show by example and get your book out or read together ("You read one page and I'll read the next.") Happy Summer!!
