Andy completes Grade 1

The three Grade 1 classes at Andy's school had a writing assignment a few weeks before school ended (this past Tuesday!). It tied in with their field trip to the zoo. The title, first two sentences, and last two sentences were the same for everyone, and each child came up with the body.

Title: My Bedroom is a Zoo
My name is Andy.
My bedroom is a zoo.
Come see, it's exciting!
The snake does flips.

The turtle colors on the papers.
The kangaroo jumps on my bed.
The bear makes a Lego table.

My bedroom is a zoo.
Come see, it's exciting!

Turns out it was a contest, and.... he won FIRST PLACE out of all the classes and received a $10 gift card to Chapters! Way to go, Andy!!

Here he is holding up a certificate he received on his last day of Grade 1. On to Grade 2 in September!
