I am really excited because the past three weeks of school we have really been working hard on our Community Unit and Map directions. We have learned how to use a compass and our directions of North, South, East, and West.
We have also learned how to write a friendly letter this week! Wow... what a task! My little munchkins have really put so much effort forth and worked so hard in our classroom.
Tomorrow is our culminating activity.... our FIELD TRIP! The kids are so excited - since we have talked about important places in our community - the other 1st grade teacher and I plan one of the best field trips around Lexington, KY! Tomorrow we get to go visit:
|1. Henry Clay Estate - Ashland - We get to tour the grounds and the inside - one of my most favorite|
places in Lexington, KY!! The kids L-O-V-E it!
|3. We get to eat McDonald's for Lunch.|
|4. We eat our McDonald's at one of the best parks in Lexington... Shilito - this is not|
Shilito Park - but it has a huge playground and is AMAZING!
|5. We also get to visit one of our Post Offices. Here we see how the mail is sorted, where special packages go and how to mail a letter... in fact - we might even get to mail something special!|
This is a super busy day but so much fun for the kids! What do you do with your class to study communities?!
Happy Reading! Amy C!
