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. In June 2016, I completed my Masters with the focus in Reading grades K-6th grade. This will be my sixth year utilizing a blog and hope that it will provide parents with another avenue to view their child's accomplishments throughout the school year.

Holiday Card Exchange

One of my favorite things we do in first-grade is mail out and receive 29 cards from around the country!  We are able to use Google Earth to determine how many miles away and the direction we would travel to for each school.  We will also find out the schools' average temperature in December.  This past week, we made our holiday cards, wrote a letter to Santa, made a Santa craft, and began our measurement unit.  Here are some photos from our week:

Happy Thanksgiving

Since I had quite a few photos from our two days before Thanksgiving break, I decided to upload them this weekend.  I hope that everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Music Technology

We sure did accomplish a lot this week!  We attended a fun, interactive music technology assembly, wrote about the lives of Pilgrim children, and ate a fabulous feast during lunchtime together.
Here are some photos from our week:
