SWYK = Show What You Know 

Show What You Know  for reading and spelling will be on Tuesday, 9/12/17. Our last assessment was learning how to log on, get to the assignment, take the test, go back and check our answers, find out how many we missed and which ones they were. This assessment is online. 



Show What You Know for math will be on Tuesday, 9/12/17 as well. This first math assessment will be over counting. This assessment will be on paper.


"Twas the Night Before School Started

On this day before school starts, I thought I would share a little poem. Believe me, it will be difficult for Mrs. Hayes to sleep tonight as well. 

Can't wait to see you all tomorrow. It's going to be a great day! :) 


'Twas the Night Before School Started

Author Unknown

'Twas the night before school started, 

when all through the town, 

The parents were cheering.

It was a riotous sound!

By eight, kids were washed

And tucked into bed...

When memories of homework

Filled them with dread.


New pencil, new folders, new notebooks, too!

New teacher, new friends...

Their anxiety grew!

The parents just giggled when

They learned of this fright

And shouted upstairs--

"Go to bed! It's a school night!" 

Pumpkin Patch

First grade went to Sweet's Pumpkin Patch in Inman. When we came back, we used our pumpkins for math and science jobs. One of the jobs we did was comparing our pumpkins for size. :)
