Last week we started doing “Think Outside the Box Thursday” as our morning work. Students are given a shape and their job is to transform it into something new. Last week was tough since it was our first time doing it, but today….WOW!!!! They blew me away with their creativity! They were given a crescent moon shape and they created some awesome pictures!!! Here are just a few of the creative works!!! Stay tuned next Thursday to see what they come up with next!

I also wanted to make sure I shared with you some news. I shared some good news with your child last week, but I know that first graders don’t always remember everything about their day by the time they get home. My husband and I are expecting our 2nd child in the beginning of March. We are very excited about the new addition to our family!
