Mrs. Donnelly's first graders have begun working in literacy centers. The children have been listening to fun and interesting books on tape as well as engaging in visual-tactile activities to enhance reading and writing skills. Literacy centers are a great way to promote independence or work collaboratively with partners or in small groups.
Additionally, the first graders in Mrs. Donnelly's class celebrated Johnny Appleseed Day in style! They made "pots" to wear on their heads just like Johnny used to wear and they followed a recipe to make applesauce. It was a great day!
