Ashlyn - 1st Grade: September 2017

The first six weeks is almost finished for Ashlyn and the other first graders.  Love seeing the different stories from her writing samples.

I like to go to California and we had to
ride on an airplane and we had a pillow

I like to play with Raeleight and Amelia
so much.  I like to play with Amelia
in ESD.  I like to play with Raeleigh.

I like the giving.  I like the giving
because it has a tire swing.

Ashlyn's 1st Grade Writing Folder

Ashlyn was assigned a project from her 1st grade teacher.  Her objective was to find pictures and create a collage to put on her writing folder.  Thankfully, Jeff helped her this afternoon to find a variety of pictures and larger letters of her name.  He also helped tape them on using packing tape to keep them from coming off easily creating almost a lamination on top of the folder.  She was most excited about finding the picture of the cat, since it was a picture of a blue russian.  Ellie, our cat, is a blue russian.

Ashlyn - 1st Grade: August 2017

Ashlyn returned to school and started 1st grade on August 16th.  She continues to stay busy with school, American Heritage Girls, and swimming at Emler Swim School.

Ashlyn learned about the Total Eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017.

I am 6 years old.
My favorite books: Frozen.

My birthday is in July 19.

I like to play (with) Riley.

Ashlyn's class read a story in 1st grade called The Recess Queen by Alexis O'Neill to learn why it is not nice to act as a bully.  She wrote, "I am not a bully because.... I want to be treated how I want to be.
I am not a bully because....
I want to be treated how I want
to be.
