Reader's Workshop: We will learn about the "tricky word strategies" that can help us when we are stuck on a word. *Please see the tricky word reference paper given out at parent teacher conferences for an overview of each strategy!
Writer's Workshop: We will learn how to write persuasive pieces about the collections that we brought in from home. 
Fundations: Having worked to master our use of digraphs: wh, sh, ch, th, and ck, we will now spell words which end with double letters such as: ll, ff, and ss.
Math: In unit 3, students will solve word problems using addition and subtraction.
Science: We will learn about how meteorologists use their senses as well as specific tools (thermometer, rain gauges, wind flags, etc.) to study the weather. 
Social Studies: In our second unit, we will explore and compare the different kinds of communities in which people live: city, town and farm.   
Health: We will learn about good nutrition and using the "food plate" in order to create a balanced diet.

About The Teacher

  I am looking forward to another year teaching First Grade.  I have had 
extensive experience teaching Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and 
Special Education as well. I find it very exciting and rewarding to have the 
opportunity to help students as they begin new adventures in learning.  It is 
an exciting time in the lives of the children and I feel very lucky to be 
able to play such an important role in their academic careers. 
  Please contact me if you have any concerns, questions or information which 
you feel may assist me in helping your child.  My email address is:
