Welcome to first grade! I am Ms. Houston, the teacher. We started our school year learning about the classroom procedures, rules, and each other. Our specials are:

  • Mondays  –  Gym and Library
  • Tuesdays –  Computer
  • Wednesdays – Gym
  • Thursdays  – Music
  • Fridays  – Art

Currently, students are learning about plants, their parts, functions, and needs.  As part of this unit the students did an apple taste test. They took 4 types of apples, Gala, Cripps Pink, Granny Smith, and Fuji, tasted them and voted for their favorite. Bar graphs were created by each child to show the class favorite, The class favorite was Granny Smith! Afterwards, they read and answered questions about their graphs.
