It's a new year at LES! Welcome to first grade! We are busy workers in the first grade wing. Our day consists of reading, math, science and social studies and the kids will have a different special each day. Our math series is Everyday Math. This program allows for group lessons, as well as, small group rotations and games. Reading is busy with guided reading, language arts, spelling, writing and handwriting. Science and Social Studies is a rotation switch between Mrs. Berkebile and myself. She teaches Social Studies and I teach Science. Each day the kids will have a 45 minute special consisting of Gym, Music, Art, Technology and Library. I am looking forward to helping your child grow as a learner and a citizen in the classroom.
