In a couple of weeks we will be reading one of my favorite books about friendship Frog And Toad Are Friends.  As most people know, Frog and Toad are unlikely friends.  Frog likes to be adventurous and happy. Toad tends to stay home and can be kind of grumpy.  In each story, Frog and Toad are faced with a challenge but somehow find a way to solve their problem, usually by working together.  In first grade we talk a lot about what it means to be a friend.  Today some friends dressed alike as "twins" and some of us found a "twin" that we didn't know we had. 

What do you think makes a good friend?

Open House

Last Thursday night we had a wonderful Open House. All of the students from room 125 were there. It was fantastic to see the students enthusiastically sharing their amazing work.

On our desks were our journals, continent tour guide books and pen pal folders.

On the front board was a picture timeline of our first grade year.
Another favorite was the writing we did on favorite American symbols, surrounded by our paper eagles. 

What was your favorite part of Open House night?
