Primary 1 Classroom News - Week of March 11-15, 2019

 

Last week, we read a story entitled; Then and Now. This story was about life long ago and today. Terry Werden and Amy from the Orient Historical Society, put together a collection of artifacts to share with Primary 1. Some of the artifacts included; a washboard for adults and one for children to use with their dolls, old rotary dial phone, wooden toy boat, small chalkboard to write on,  a children’s book that was over 100 years old, and ice skates. So thankful to Mrs. Werden and the Orient Historical Society for enhancing our learning about life long ago.

Mickey/Minnie Adventures

Last week, Mickey went home with Jack. He enjoyed his visit with Jack and his family. He went on a train ride to Riverhead and visited the aquarium. Mickey and Jack saw lots of fish, but they loved the sharks the MOST. Mickey and Jack’s family went to a play at Greenport School. They liked the songs.

Minnie went home with Vanessa this past weekend and she was so happy. Minnie played with Vanessa’s toys and loved cuddling with her at night. In the morning she ate delicious pancakes with bananas. So, So, YUMMY!
