This is a great site to review letters/sounds and for beginning reading!
First grade had a wonderful year. We have grown so much academically and socially. Our last month of school was very busy, with so many activities and projects. We raised Painted Lady Butterflies from tiny caterpillars and released them the last couple days of school. A field trip to Mountain Valley Bank finished our unit on money. Swimming day and field day were lots of fun.
As this is my last year of teaching, it is very sad to see this group of students move on. I am excited for them and hope to see all my students in the community and at school functions. Thank you to the students and parents for a memorable year. Have a great summer!
Please go to the Pictures page of this website to see all our photos of special events and projects. There will also be descriptions of the albums with explanations. If you click on a picture, you will see the title, description, and comments of the photo.
For our e-pals in the Solomon Islands, we are in the process of having each student type 4 sentences in a comment under their picture. We would like one of Miss Louisah's students write a comment back under the same picture. That way, each student in our class will have a corresponding student to write to in Miss Louisah's class. We are excited to see how this works!
This summer I took a trip to the Solomon Islands to help teachers and to develop some classroom connections through a program called World Class. We took supplies to Nelly and her students at the Three Swallows School, the one my classes and I have been helping for three years. My husband, Charlie, helped make repairs to the school, also. We met many wonderful people~ adults and children. It was an exciting adventure!
If you look in the pictures section you will see some of the schools and the students. We were at three schools. We were helping at Three Swallows School in the village of Nusabaruka on the island of Gizo; setting up websites and making connections at Patukae Community on Vanganu Islan. Both of these schools are in the Solomon Islands. We were also at Namaka Public School in Nadi on the island of Viti Levu in the Fiji Islands.
I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. We will be learning more about the students and schools this year.
