In 1st grade Reading students read different versions the folktale, The Three Little Pigs. In the STEAM Lab with Miss Conroy, students at Economy and State Street created houses for the 3 Little pigs out of drinking straws, craft sticks and Legos and cubes. Students worked as a team and followed the Engineering and Design process. They documented their progress in their Engineering & Design Notebooks. Students read a Reader’s Theater script of The Three Little Pigs and acted out the play through a puppet show. Each class filmed 2 videos on an iPad using green screen technology. Below you will find their final products. We hope you enjoy them!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving theme. We had the traditional Charlie Brown food; popcorn, toast, jelly beans, pretzel sticks. My students decorated the table with a fall theme; acorns, leaves, and pine cones. They also did an amazing job making pilgrim hats and Native American headbands.
