LOCUST GROVE PRIMARY SCHOOL
During the month of December, the first graders at LGPS spent some time exploring different activities based on the season of winter. The activities included a winter story retelling, fact family snowmen, picking up ice without the use of your hand (STEAM), and a look back into the past of a one room schoolhouse. I hope your child came home excited to share their many adventures in the first grade classrooms!

Locust Grove Primary School Cardinals participated in Hour of Code during two of their 30-minute computer lab lessons. All students, K-2, codded using block coding on Code.org for their first lesson. Kindergarten continued to use Code.org during their second lesson while 1st and 2nd Grades learned about programming drones, robots, and computers in the STEAM Lab using multiple types of drones, Ozobots, and Raspberry Pi's.
FULL STEAM AHEAD INTO THE NEW YEAR!
First graders visited a replica of a one room school house at LGPS. The students enjoyed games and activities, created handmade toys, and feasted on food from the past! They also created classroom quilts and used hornbooks to practice writing on slate boards!
