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.

A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

We are settling in wonderfully to our routines in room 105.  We are having a blast as we learn, play, and share with each other every day.  Here are a few photos to show just that from our past week:
Authors Sharing
Playing Heads and Tails
 
 
Learning How to Solve a Missing Addend as We Play 
How Many Am I Hiding?
 
Showing Our Creativity After Reading The Dot

All About Me

It was fun to share a special artifact from our past to let our class know a little more about us.  We also accomplished our first craft of the year!  We have continued to show what we can do in Literacy Stations and we learned our last two. Last, we had fun during our Choosy Suzy assembly.  Here are a few photos from our week:
Literacy Stations
Spelling Station
  
Pocket Chart Station
New Buddies and Books from our Scholastic Points
 
New Game (Zingo) from our Scholastic Points
Rocking our Red, White, and Blue and Three-Cornered Hats for Constitution Day
 We had to make our 'silly face' too!

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! :)
