We have so many exciting things happening in the first grade!  We will be starting book groups this week.  They will be interest based series books.  If your Seal has a book or  books from home that they would like to bring in, they are more than welcome to.   We have also conducted lots of Science experiments and have been writing about them in our Science journals.  There are many events in the last six weeks of school.  Be sure to check out the upcoming events.
