Fall is a busy time of year in first grade! There are so many fun activities for the students :) To start the season, we visited Trunnell Farms Pumpkin Patch! The students learned the process of growing pumpkins and picked there own pumpkin! We learned how to decorate a jack-o-lantern once we returned to school!

Welcome to our adventures in first grade! I hope you will find our blog both informational and entertaining! Each week, I will update the blog with information to help you help your child inside and outside the classroom! I will also showcase events, projects, and pictures from our week in first grade!
This week I want to remind you about http://www.tumblebooklibrary.com/. The username is cravensteacher and the password is books. It is an amazing website full of stories for all reading levels and interests! As long as you have speakers, a narrarator will read the story to your child! Often times there is an online quiz and games to play! You can access it through Learning Links on the right column of the blog...check it out :)
