Safety, Safety, Read All About It

On Thursday the first graders learned about 6 different safety topics.  The guest speakers were part of our Project Based Learning. The students came up with one question for each guest.  The students then picked one of the safety topics for their project.  They will be writing their driving question at home.    

Fire Safety with Chris Reha

Playgroud Safety with Mrs. Coffie

Stranger Danger with Officer Daggett

Bike Safety with Kris Hauswirth

Bus Safety

Weather Safety with KCCI's Frank Scaglione

A huge THANK YOU to all of our guest speakers.  The students learned a lot and had a great time!

On Friday the first graders skyped with author, Ame Dyckman.  It was great to hear all about her love for books and writing.  She is the author of Boy + Bot.  

  • Spelling Test on Friday.
  • Your child brought home their PBL packet on Friday.  They need to come up with a driving question for their safety topic and return it to school on Monday.  Please let me know if you have any questions about this.  We are very excited about it!
