Field Trip to Windsor Fairgrounds This Week!

On Thursday, May 16, all first graders will be visiting the New England Livestock Expo at the Windsor Fairgrounds. Our bus will leave school at 9 a.m. and return at 1:30 p.m. Please make sure to have your child dress in layers to accommodate any weather. We’ll eat lunch at the fairgrounds, so don’t forget to pack a lunch unless you signed up for a school lunch.

Thank You,

Mrs. Sturgis

How Long is a Whale Shark?

Well, we learned that it’s the biggest shark and that it can be as long as 60 feet. As we were reading the Sharks book by Gail Gibbons, I had been comparing many of the other sharks sizes to my height, saying that’s about one of me or that’s about three of me. Of course, when we got to this one they wanted to know how many of me that would be.

So, I told them it would be about as long as 17 first graders and two teachers. “Wow!” they said. “Picture what it would look like if we all laid down and lined ourselves up,” I said. “Can we?” they asked. “Why not!” I replied. So, that’s what we did in the hallway. Here it is.
