1st Grade News 9/7/15

1st Grade News Link
The heat of summer is upon us and we are trying to find ways to cool off and tolerate classroom heat and humidity.  Last week, a few kind, generous families provided Popsicles - a delightful, refreshing treat for the children!  My husband packed a cooler of ice each morning and students cooled down by rubbing ice cubes on faces, arms and legs.  We also used a large spray bottle to cool the neck area, head and arms.

 Finding shade to enjoy Popsicles 

Red, white and blue Popsicles

Some of our school buildings were built in the 50's and 60's before SMART Boards, technology carts, Net Books, iPads and other devices made their way into the classroom landscape.  Unfortunately, technology intensifies the heat and the lone wall-mounted fan provides minimal relief.  I hate to wish summer away, but for the sake of our little learners, I am hoping for cooler temperatures to stay.

Our Featured Friend sprayed friends at the end of the day while waiting for dismissal. 

This fella found temporary relief from the heat by placing ice cubes in towel paper and resting it on his head for a few seconds. 
This week will start off with intense heat and humidity but it will be a good week in first grade!
