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.

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. :)
