I got a chance to go into my first grader’s school for a presentation recently called the Habitat Happening, which was a project done by all the first graders at the school. There wasn’t much information on the flier as to what the presentation was actually about, and of course my six year old just shrugged his shoulders when I asked him. The flier just said to be there at 2 pm on a certain date, so that’s where I was.
Once all the parents and three out of the six first grade classes piled into the cafeteria, the teachers explained why we were there. That is after they talked about the common core standards for the project first. Side note: I hate common core!
