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 fifth year utilizing a blog and hope that it will provide parents with another avenue to view their child's accomplishments throughout the school year.

Happy 100th Day!

The countdown is finally over, our 100th Day of school has come and gone.  We had a great time celebrating the day!  We also finished up our polar bear or penguin writing.  Here are some photos from our week:

Polar Bear Presentation

Polar Bear Demo Day is by far one of my favorite days of the year!  My lovely daughter, Briana, comes to our classroom (and visits all of the first grade rooms) and conducts a demonstration about polar bears.  She learned how to do this demonstration during her time as a youth volunteer at the Cincinnati Natural History Museum.  Her first presentation for my class was when she was 13 years old.  At the age of 19, she still does an amazing job with the students.  Obviously, I'm one proud Momma!  Here are some photos from that week:

What Time is It?

The following is the post I tried to send a couple of weeks ago; Google was not cooperating for some reason:
This past week Mother Nature showed our area how unpredictable she can be.  Our week was much shorter than planned; however, I still managed to get some photos of our week:
We practiced telling time to the hour & half hour.

We read a book, "Martin's Big Words", and made a self-to-text connection.

COSI on Wheels

We are so grateful to have a wonderful PTO that sponsors great events for our us.  This past week, students attended COSI on Wheels and had a blast!  Here are some photos from our week:
