An Exciting, Nature-Filled Day!

Each day in Room 222 is an adventure!

Check out what was crawling around McDole's playground today!

So, what is a 1st grade teacher to do when something this cool in in our school?????

Wonder about it, of course!

We took a museum walk through the office to meet our visitor then immediately returned to the room to begin gathering our thoughts. 

We compared it to other turtles we know. 

We studied it's picture. 

We jotted our thoughts.

Here is a Padlet wall that shares all of our learning:

We also said "Farewell" to our Room 222 butterflies today. GF raised them well and now they are ready for the world. 

GF felt them flutter on her finger...

She found safe places for all of them to live...

She also took charge during our "butterfly emergency"!

Great job GF! Thank you for sharing your Genius Hour project with all of us!


Here is a little project that we have been working on. We reviewed a new product this week (our intro to opinion writing). Check out our thoughts on the Gripcase:


  1. Busy day again in room 222

  2. They sold me on a grip case! What a fun classroom.
