This last week we have been learning about the life cycles of butterflies.  We looked at some of the special things about Monarch butterflies.  Did you know that a Monarch lays it eggs on milkweed plants because that's what the the caterpillars will eat.  And when a caterpillar gets ready to make their chrysalis they hang upside down in a "J" shape!

Here is our caterpillar, that we named Black and Yellow, getting ready to make its chrysalis.

It was another great week of learning in 1st grade.  Next week we will start spelling.  The first test will be on Friday Sep. 27th.   Grades will not be recorded for report cards until the second 9 weeks of school.

Welcome To Our Blog!

Welcome friend and family of this years Gray's Go Getters!!  We've only been in school for 11 days but we have done some super exciting things already. 

We went to the fair.

And checked out all the constructions vehicles that have been used at U.V.

I am having such a great time working with this group of kids.  I hope they are having as good a time as I am.  Check back often for updates and information!
