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

Mad Science

The winter weather sure has played with us this season.  Even though it is nice to sleep in a bit, the 2-hour delay schedule can be somewhat crazy!  I'm so ready to say 'good-bye' to winter and 'hello' to spring. 

Thanks to our wonderful PTO, we were able to participate in a Mad Science activity!  I just realized that most of the photos I took this past week were all from that day. :)  Here are just a few photos of our past week:

After downloading the photos from this past week, it never ceases to amaze me how much we are able to accomplish in one week...last week we only had 4 days to boot!  Here are some photos of our wonderful week:

February Fun

There are so many fun themes that we do in February!  One of the students favorite theme is Healthy Teeth.  The first grade team will be providing a poster for Science Night that will offer some insight into what we do, so I won't say (or show) too much today.  Here are a few photos to show some of the other things we did this week:
We published and celebrated our Personal Narrative books.
We added a long 'A' poem to our Poetry Notebooks.
We conducted a science experiment. 
We displayed our first research paper!

100th Day

We had lots of fun last week during our 100th day celebration!  I took quite a few photos that day and a few others during the week.
