Fiesta Time!

The First Grade studied about Mexico during the first nine weeks of school and so, to celebrate, they had a fiesta last Friday.  The moms all brought food and decorations and the kids had a great time.

 We ended the Fiesta with a pinata!
 This week was also spirit week and Friday was "Crazy Hair Day."

 After the boys and the girls had each broken their pinata Ms. Fields just started throwing candy at them.  They absolutely love her.

 At the beginning of the year they were given a Sight Word folder which reviewed the 100 sight words from Kindergarten and the 100 words they need to know for First Grade. In addition the folder included the next 800 sight words and the kids were encouraged to work ahead.  Our little reader was the first one in his class to finish the entire folder and Ms. Fields surprised him with these amazing gifts.  (Mama was a bit overwhelmed with her generosity.  Our teachers do NOT get paid enough!)
