Maestra Perez’ 1st graders took their THANKFUL GIVING seriously for their Thanksgiving celebration.
Instead of having a big feast for themselves.. all of Lincoln's first graders gloved-up and assembled & bagged over 700 turkey, ham, pastrami and chicken & cheese sandwiches with grateful love in their hearts and smiles on their faces.
They seriously got into their sandwich making! Many were asking if they could sample the meat and cheese… and others were begging for MORE MEAT! MORE CHEESE.. and MORE BREAD when their supply plates got empty! They had a great time…
While we could not take the entire 1st grade to Dorothy’s Kitchen to deliver the Thankful Giving Sandwiches… we took pictures and presented a slide show later that same day so the kids could see where their sandwiches went and who they were helping to feed.
They felt proud to be able to do that.
It was a great experience
If anyone would like to volunteer to help out at Dorothy’s Kitchen you CAN! and you can bring the kids too! It’s a great community service for a wonderful cause.

In addition, Maestra Perez' students have been working in the garden. They have harvested kale and weighed and measured their leaves. Along with the benefits of being outside in a beautiful environment, the students used the ruler for the first time and learned about measurements. If any parent is interested in helping Maestra Perez' with garden time, please email her for more information on how you can get involved.
Also, be on the look out for information regarding the Recycled Art Project. Maestra Perez along with her colleagues Kelli Hemenway and Yesenia Ruiz have been working on a school wide art project. Students and their families will be asked to be specific items to school to help make a recyclable art piece.

In the classroom, Maestra Santos and her students have been working on Dr. Seuss' birthday activities. Be sure to walk by their classroom and check out all the beautiful artwork and bulletin boards. Lincoln has some very talented artists. We owe a big thank you to parent, Tracy Russell, who decorated Maestra Santos' bulletin board and lead the students in the "All the Places You Will Go" art project, shown below. Tracy is so creative and talented! You can see more of her work down the hall at Maestra Rios' class.
