Mrs. Bumgardner's 1st Grade Class

This week we learned about the lifecycle of a pumpkin. We watched a movie called Pumpkin Circle and read this big book about how to grow a pumpkin. Then we made a book of our own by sequencing the pictures and sentences. We also read Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White and did an activity about the main character. Most of our centers this week work pumpkin themed. We put words in ABC Order and drew a picture to go with each word. We created colorful patterns {AB. ABC. AAB. ABB} with pumpkins…

The wonderful world of writing!

These are writing prompts and paper that I use throughout the whole year. There are over 25 of them...all for you! :) I put them in writing centers, sometimes use them in whole group lessons, and even use them as "fast finishers". The kiddos love them! I ALWAYS do an example page for them. Some of the writing papers don't have specific things that they have to write about....For instance, the "Spring Fun" page. The students can really write about anything that has to do with spring. They can…

Informative/Expository Writing - making a cup of hot cocoa

Writing Maniacs!

We have been writing maniacs these past two weeks!

Each student "made" a cup of hot cocoa. I brought in the supplies…

Redirecting

We have been learning a lot about ocean animals. We learned all about different types of sharks and we decided that we thought the Great white Shark was the most interesting. We labeled the parts of a shark. This is our schema chart based on an idea from Debbie Miller. We made sharks and orca whales and then sorted the information we learned by using a venn diagram. A close up of some of our shark and whale writing. Our crabs and crab writing. If y'all are looking for an adorable story to…
