    Welcome to First Grade 
    in Room 15!


          Excitment is running high in first grade in 2013-14!
          First grade is an important year in your child's education with new friendships being formed, work and study skills becoming more polished, and a new level of independence emerging. I am so happy to share this fascinating and exciting time in your child's life.
          Literacy learning will be implemented through a workshop format which supports individualized instruction in small groups. The Open Court Reading curriculum, "Imagine it!", will guide the reading instruction.
         Students will gain a solid foundation of math skills that align with the WA State Grade Level Expectations through the use of manipulatives and games with the TERC Investigations math curriculum. Science will be taught with the FOSS curriculum.
          I strive to nurture each child's social and emotional growth through developmentally sound educational practices. We will work hard, but we will have fun!
