Projects by Jen 2013

At the end of this week, our first graders will begin the 2013 Holiday Card Project created by educator, Jen Wagner.  You can learn about Jen’s holiday card project here.   
A snip from her Holiday Card Project 2013 Site:
Please consider visiting her site to read about additional ways Jen encourages educators and learners to connect and collaborate with others around the globe.  Link
In addition to the opportunity to connect with other students, this project will allow our students to focus on first grade social studies standards while learning about maps and globes and their symbols.  We’ll also integrate math skills and work on data collection and analysis. 

2012 was the first year our first grade students took part in this engaging project.  You can read about our participation in last year’s project here.
This picture of our bulletin board showed how we tracked our collection of cards last year.  I changed the bulletin board this year and will share pictures in the near future.
