Firsties at South began last week reading “Bat Loves the Night” by author, Nicola Davies. This book led the students on a mission to learn about why a bat is not a bird, different types of bats, parts of a bat and more! The week finished with the first official BAT DAY!! Students spent the day in a bat cave with lights off, flashlights, glow sticks, and even a bat roost. Students worked on art, informative writing, comparing bats and birds, and a whole grade level activity to understand echolocation. The kids had a blast and were able to share what they had learned all week!

First graders are building a strong classroom community with their morning meetings each day. To begin with, the class reads a message from Mrs. Gray. Students then greet each other in unique ways each day. Then, students are selected to think deep and answer the question of the day. Our meeting concludes each day with an activity that encourages the whole group to work together as a team. It is so fun to watch them grow as a community and become closer each day!

1st graders are excited for a magical year! On Thursday, they received a special delivery of magic play dough, and today they made magic bracelets! While we took time to make predictions of what would happen and talked about why our bracelets changed colors when we walked outside and glowed in the dark when we came inside, our favorite answer and the most logical answer came from a special first grader who said she thought the magic was brought on by our love and care! First graders at South are in for a magical year of learning and leading! #Olyspartanpride
