This week we learned about adjectives.  We learned that an adjective is a word that describes a noun.  We highlighted adjectives, went on an adjective hunt, and used our 5 senses to help us describe nouns.  The children's favorite noun to describe was the S'mores we created.
Before we made S'mores we tested out our 5 senses on marshmallows. 
In math this week we began our unit on measurement.  We were introduced to Mr. Measurement.  He doesn't always like to follow the rules and he measures things the "nonstandard" way.  He will use cubes, shells, and even his feet to measure things.  We started the week measuring the nonstandard way, and ended the week measuring in inches.
In writing, we began our unit on poetry.  We learned about Acrostic Poems.  We had so much fun making these. At first they were a little tricky, because we all wanted to write sentences.  We have learned the whole year to use capital letters and ending marks and then this week we were told we didn't have to! You may have seen an Acrostic Poem come home in our bookbags on Friday.  We created a special one just for our moms!
This week was especially busy because we had our Animal Museum followed by Student Led Conferences.  We have been working really hard getting ready for the conferences we were all very excited for them! Our favorite part was showing off our first day of first grade writing AND giving our parents HOMEWORK!!!
Before the animal museum started we went on a scavenger hunt.
Take a look at our animal museum...
After the animal museum it was time for Student Led Conferences.  We did such a great job and enjoyed sharing reading, writing, and math with our parents. The next day we reviewed our parents homework and gave everyone an A+!!
We ended this busy busy week with our 150 paw celebration.  We decided to celebrate with popcorn, stuffed animals, and a movie.
Wow! What a fun busy week!!
