Thing 1 and Thing 2

by Steve Krile


This Week

We made SUPER cute Thing 1 and Thing 2s with our hand prints.

We continued to practice counting backwards from any number this week. We have started practicing this at calendar every morning.

We learned what contractions are.

We reviewed opposites.

Counting feet in Kriletown was worked on this week.

We really understood blends this week!

We learned a new Dynamite dance in gym, choreographed by Mrs. Hart and the fifth graders.



We are in need of dry erase markers.

If you have any puzzles you would like to donate to Kriletown we would love it!!

Please be sure and send back your parent input forms for next year. The administration is very interested in your placement thoughts for next year. :)

Report cards will come home March 18th. These Krile kids are SMART!!!!  

Spring break starts Friday, March 28th

Book orders are due Monday, March 25th.

Reading and Writing


This week we finished up reading books written by Jane Chapman. We also began reading books by Dr. Seuss.  We will be enjoying Dr. Seuss books for the next week.

In writer’s workshop this week the kids continue to work on animal research projects. At the end of this writing unit the children will be able to tell you such facts as where the animal lives, what the animal eats, if the animal lives in groups or alone and where in the world the animal can be found. This is one of the major writing projects in first grade and will take us several weeks to complete.

Social Studies and Science


Check out for pictures of our trip to Kensington.  

After reading Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Krile Kids had a lot of fun playing with REAL oobleck. We tried to decide if oobleck is a solid or a liquid. What do you think?
