Welcome to our First Grade Class! In our curriculum we implement the Common Core standards where each lesson is aligned with the appropriate standards. Our Daily schedule consists of Math, Reading, Language Arts, Phonics, Spelling, Science and Social Studies. I believe in differentiated teaching and teaching each individual child to his/her ability since we all don't learn the same way. I try to incorporate as many hands-on activities as possible to keep the students engaged in their learning. The majority of our hands-on activities are through centers or special projects that go along with the curriculum. I believe that in order for the students to be successful in their learning we have to work as a team. The parents, students, and teacher all have to work together to ensure the success of the student. Team Work makes the Dream Work! I look forward to working with you and having a successful year.
