Check out 1st grade WHEELIE Parade!
Welcome to 1st grade! First grade is an exciting time as children embark on new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. During first grade, your child will expand their reading, write stories, add, subtract, multiply and so much more. I will make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling. So much happens in First Grade! It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in my class.
