My Students

I teach a wonderful group of first graders that love to learn! Our school is in a high performing district because the parents, students, teachers, and community are fully vested in the education of our children.

In our first grade classroom, we love to learn about many things, but most importantly we are leaning to grow socially and emotionally!

This year we are learning and practicing many life skills and lessons and are striving to have a growth mindset.

With a growth mindset children are learning to say "I can't YET," instead of "I CAN'T." We are also learning that no matter what our brains can and will always grow and stretch as we learn more and more each day!

My Project

Every day we are learning how to be "the Best Me I can be" while working and learning together as a class family. This year we're specific learning and growing socially and emotional with lessons and role playing activities, to help us apply them in every day situations.

With these new Julia Cooks books and teaching guides we will have more resources and activities to pull from and to keep here in our room.

This way students will also have access to the books so they may read them on their own. We may also have them on hand when we need a quick review during a real time situation.
