My Students

I have a wonderful first grade class this year. They are outgoing, kind, and generous. The class is excited about learning and would like to show the world what they can do. Students will be completing projects that take them around the world virtually.

As a first grade student, each child needs to understand their place in the world.

Although many of my families are from other countries, each student's understanding is limited to the area where they live. By exploring cultures online, my students can gain a ​better understanding of the cultures that surround us.

My Project

In our very exciting year of first grade, students are learning so much. This year is all about mastering basic foundational skills while still having fun! The workbooks allow students to practice their basic skills in math and reading.

The Science Spin will give students a chance to apply their new learning to fun science activities.

Science Spin also includes writing and experiments for the kids to try.The book sets will bring science and social studies to their level, so they can apply all they have learned.

By then of the year, first graders should be able to be using these non-fiction texts to write their own reports. So exciting!
