First Grade 2016 – 2017 Video
Dear first graders,
Thank you so much for a truly memorable and incredible year! I am so proud of how hard all of you have worked, and it has been my honor to watch you grow and learn. I have loved every moment of being your teacher. Please remember that once you are my student, you are always my student. My door is always open if you ever need anything.
Please watch this video that I made as a thank you for all of my smart cookies!
I hope you all have a wonderful summer!

Book of the Week
Animal Research Project
My reading group has been working on the Animal Research Project! Each student chose an animal to become an expert on. Students have paraphrased their research to create rough drafts. They revised and edited these rough drafts before creating a table of contents, pictures with captions, and a cover for their final drafts.
Words of the Week
We have completed our Reading Street series! There will be no spelling words this week!View More
