Welcome to First Grade!!!!

By now you should have received a letter welcoming you to our classroom. I am really excited to meet each of you. I have been working really hard to get the room ready for you to visit on Meet Your Teacher Night on August 10 at 5:30-7:15. Here is a sneak peek at the room that looks a lot better than it did a few months ago when we moved out of VPS:

Here is our calendar and where we will display our Star of the Week. I will have pictures of me up on the board for you to get to see my family and even a picture of when I was in first grade…(a LONG time ago)!! You will get to share pictures of you when you are STAR of the Week! It will be fun to meet your family and learn more about each of you too.

When you come for Meet Your Teacher Night remember to bring your school supplies. I know you have gotten a big list of all the things you are needing. Here is an updated list:

Work In Progress!

Moving from VPS has been bitter is a look at the new classroom as I unloaded 23 years of stuff into the room. Organizing has been a lot of work!! I have been busy trying to get it to all fit.
