2012 - 2013 School Year
Mrs. Ralls and Mrs. Patel's first graders have a fantastic understanding of what a topic is and what items fall under the umbrella of a certain topic. Take a look at the great work they did brainstorming ideas that fit within their chosen topics (look for the largest word in each word cloud for the children's topics).
We are thankful for...
Happy International Dot Day
September 15, 2012
In recognition of Peter Reynolds' Dot Day, our first graders created their own dot masterpieces. Somewhere on the piece they jotted down a unique thought about how they could leave their mark (or "dot") on the Lower School this year, just as the character Vashti left a mark on the little boy character in the book, The Dot. You'll notice that our masterpieces are all framed in "swirly gold." The last thing each child was asked to do with his/her drawing? "Sign it."
