We are so fortunate to be in a school district close to Millersville University. Today some of the future teachers enrolled at MU visited our school and presented our first graders with a science fair. Our class rotated to 7 different science stations where the first graders were able to participate in hands-on science experiments. The MU students made learning so much fun! Everyone came home with a science experiment to try at home!
We had fun celebrating reading this week! Did you hear that our school was decorated like Seussville? On Wednesday we incorporated making/tasting Green Eggs and Ham with our Math lesson on graphing. The kids were amazed at how easy it was to make our special treat, and each one of them came home with the recipe.
