The two first grades read the
book Snow Day by Betsey Maestro. They each did a different
project. Mrs. Gatyas' class wrote the following story after
reading the book.
In At SCHOOL
Written and Illustrated by Mrs. Gatyas' First Grade
sunny morning we came to school on our buses. The wind began
to blow and the snow began to fall and fall and fall! Before
we knew it, we had 6 feet of snow! The buses could not come to take
us home! There was no way for them to get up the steep hill!
We were snowed in at school! We went to the cafeteria and made a lot
of food! We ate chicken, pizza, chicken noodle soup, bagels, hot
dogs, and cookies! Then we played games in the gym! Then
we took the mats down from the wall and had one big slumber party in
the gym! It was fun! In the morning we ate bagels, pancakes,
cereal, fruit, yogurt, waffles, and omelets! Yum! The sun was
shining brightly! The snow was melting and the big snow plows
cleaned the snow off the driveway! We got on our buses and went
home! We had a lot of fun being snowed in at school!
Mrs. Cole's Class wrote this
Snow Day for A First Grader
It was the
first day of winter. At night it started to snow. I woke up and
looked out the window. I saw snow everywhere! I woke up my family. I
ate, then got dressed faster than a jackrabbit runs. I did lots of
stuff in one day. I made a snowman. I went sledding and
snowboarding. Finally, I had the biggest snowball fight with my
family and friends. I warmed up and ate my yummy lunch. I went back
outside with my ice skates. I put them on and skated. I came inside
because it was getting dark. I ate a delicious dinner. I was so
tired I went to bed. I had an exciting snow day! I know I will be
going to school tomorrow but you never know when there will be
another fun snow day for a first grader!
Then in computer class the first
graders worked on the following activity using Kidspiration.
