Mrs. Fischer came into our classroom this week to help us make a cute snowman craft. Not only did she volunteer her time but also the supplies needed to make the project. The students enjoyed it and were so excited to take their ornaments home. Thank you Mrs. Fischer!

The Kindness Elf made his first appearance in our classroom last night! He assigned us the task of picking up garbage on the Riverview playground. We were very excited and did a great job completing our first task!
We also had some fun and got a little dirty during word work today!
Shhhh! Please remember to keep this a secret!
December is quickly approaching and the 1st grade classes are going to have a Kindness Elf visiting their classrooms. The Kindness Elf is a variation of “Elf on the Shelf” but the focus is acts of kindness. Some days the kids will have small acts of kindness and other days they will have larger acts of kindness. There are 2 days that we need a little help from parents. On Thursday, December 14th we will be ringing bells for Salvation Army at Copps and Stone Ridge from 4:00 p.m.- 6:00 p.m. We are asking that the kids sign up to help us ring bells for 15 minutes. A signup sheet will be coming to your email. We are also baking cookies for the Wautoma Area Police Department and need help with supplies. When the date is closer we will send an email sign-up for this also.
We are really excited about this activity. We want to show the kids how a little kindness can make someone's day just a little brighter. Please keep this a secret from your child. The Elf will deliver a kindness card each day, so they won't know about the bell ringing or cookie baking before the day of the event. If you prefer that your child does not take part in the kindness activities please let us know.

Our two day week was packed full of Thanksgiving learning! We've been busy learning about the first Thanksgiving and sharing what we're thankful for. Today we completed a STEM project. We worked together with a group to build a Mayflower Ship that held the most Pilgrims (pennies.) Congratulations to George, Tanner, Finn and Karla! Their boat held over 200 pennies! We also made bracelets that help us to retell the story of the first Thanksgiving. Also watch for a Thankful Turkey book to come home in your child's backpack. Enjoy the break!
