• Welcome to 1st Grade!

        I‘m thrilled to be your child’s teacher this year and to be working together with Ms. Amanda Bollini.  I am looking forward to what is sure to be an exciting year of learning for our class.  In first grade, students will grow as readers and writers through our work in Word Study, Reading Workshop, and Writing Workshop. Through our reading we will explore the Social Studies themes of Family, School, Communities, Citizenship, Teamwork, Holidays & Celebrations, American Symbols and American Presidents, and Caring for the Earth.  We have some interesting field trips planned throughout the year and we will celebrate the holidays and seasons through fun activities in our classroom. I’m happy to be working together with you to support your child and help him/her reach his/her potential.
