1. Earth Day
We started Earth Day with
a visit from Fancy Nancy
and her story,
Every Day is Earth Day.
This cute activity came from
Fun 2B in First!
We wrote about how we can help the earth.
Fiction & Nonfiction Pair
with insect story souvenir
This is a fun insect activity
from Deanna Jump.
Students received another story
souvenir after reading that insects have
compound eyes. We used them to look
at each other and draw what we saw
from a bug's eye view!
Are bugs creepy or cool?
Another fun activity from
Deanna Jump's packet.
Students surveyed 10 friends
to see if they think bugs are
creepy or cool. They tallied,
graphed and answered a few questions.
We watched the video of
Diary of a Fly and read a
nonfiction book about flies
on BookFlix, which is through
our Area Education Agency.
Two more read alouds on fly day
with fun fly glasses!
Old Black Fly is one of my favorite books!
We have read every
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a..
story this year! I pulled out the
Old Lady to Celebrate and act
out the original story!
This cute fly craft is from
From the Pond.
We wrote about if we were a fly,
what would we do.
The students got pretty creative!
Fiction and Nonfiction Pair
story souvenir ant
came from Cara Carroll!
I LOVE how they turned out!
We started our worm day reading this story
and singing this song. We discussed why dirt
is important. Then, I took this bag around and had
the kids feel inside. I told them there may
or may not be worms in the bag!
We also compared worms to insects.
Note the boy in red in the last two pics!
Cracks me up!
(Cellentani pasta, not WORMS!)
Students filled out the sheet
about what they thought was
in the bowl and then what was
actually in the bowl.
All but one student thought it
was worms! That one little one
said it was macaroni!
One kiddo even REFUSED to
put his hand in to feel it!
Afterwards, he said,
"Pasta? You scared us with pasta?!"
We filled out a worms are, can, have
sheet and wrote a story about a worm.
These activities came from
First Grade Blue Skies.
We shared our worm stories.
Then of course, we ended worm
day by making dirt with a worm inside!
Students completed the procedural
writing for making dirt before they ate.

5. Peter Rabbit Operetta
I have had students perform this
for years and I still LOVE it!
We have this during the day and
invite families members.
The script came from
Lucy Jensen and Cherry Carl.
Students draw and paint the props.
I use Jan Brett's printable animals
for the animal chorus.
Our first batch of caterpillars died.
Every single one of them.
They had to have been sick.
The company sent us a new batch
and they are doing wonderfully!
Thanks for stopping by!
