About Me

My Photo
I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in June 2009. I began my wonderful career teaching first grade shortly thereafter, in August 2009. This is my fourth year utilizing a blog and hope that it will provide parents with another avenue to view their child's accomplishments throughout the school year.

Literacy Stations, We Can!

We have been learning all about what We Can do in Literacy Stations these past couple of weeks.  As fun as some of the stations are, we have really shown how to use our soft voices as we learn with our friends!  It has been a joy for me to watch this process unfold.  Additionally, we have learned how to play more Math addition games as well as how Scientists use their senses to explore nature.  Here are a few photos from our wonderful week:
Literacy Stations
Buddy Reading Station
 
  
Game, ABC, & File Folder Stations
 
Computer, Listening, and Writing Stations
 
Math Games
Five-in-a-Row
 
Roll and Record
 
Scientists at Work
 
 

I have to mention that our Bengals day paid off with a Bengals win last Sunday!
Hopefully, they can still pull off a win without us dressing up this past Friday...

Who Dey!

We had yet another wonderful week in room 105!  We learned how to play some fun Math games, showed what we 'Can Do' in Literacy Stations, participated in a fun name activity, and showed our Who Dey spirit!  Here are a few photos from our week:

Name Game
We grouped ourselves according to similarities of letters in our names.
  
 
 We noticed that we have a lot of students with the letter 'a' in their first name. 
 Students without an 'a' in their name.

We are showing our team spirit!!!

Off to a Great Start

I cannot say enough about how well these first two weeks of school have gone!  We are working hard learning about and putting into practice our routines and showing that we know the expected behaviors.  Here are some photos showing a few things we did last week:
We discussed and showed how to care for books.
We played Collect 20.
 
We finished our STARS books and signed our contract stating we know how to be Safe, Trustworthy, Accountable, Respectful, and have Self-Control.
 
 
We showed what We Can Do in the ABC Station. 
  We shared our writing.
  
We built staircases.
  
As you can see, we accomplished A LOT last week!
Please congratulate your child on a job well done. :)
