First grade students celebrated the beginning of Fall with New Garden Elementary School’s annual Scarecrow Day. Students were invited to dress-up like scarecrows for a festive and fun-filled school day.
Throughout the day, first grade teachers Mrs. Kristen Selover, Mrs. Kimberly Hall, Mrs. Melissa Ricketts, Mrs. Lisa McCoy, and Ms. Tessa Pulli hosted Fall-themed activities for students to participate in as they traveled to different classrooms.
Mrs. Selover read aloud a Fall favorite, The Little Scarecrow Boy, and discussed character traits with the visiting students.
Mrs. Hall conducted an exciting science experiment to predict what would happen when baking soda and vinegar were mixed inside of a pumpkin.
Students who visited Mrs. Ricketts’ room learned all about bats as they researched the interesting mammals.
Mrs. McCoy read aloud The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything and invited students to join her in a discussion about the sequence of the story.
Ms. Pulli invited students to create shape monsters as a shape exploration activity.
It is safe to say that overall it was a great day!
