Welcome to first grade! Check out my documents page for sight words and math facts.

April 20th update:
This week will begin our Choice Boards, which can be located on our ClassDojo page and are emailed out on Fridays. Please continue working on sight and snap words with your students, all of which can be found under Files and Documents on our website. Please continue to check ClassDojo for weekly updates and resources. I miss you all!

March 20th update: 
I hope you and your families are doing well. I have added the 2019-2020 instructional calendar, pacing guides for reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies in the Files and Documents section, along with activities to help with Reading Comprehension. These guides layout what I teach your children and at what pace. I have also added Pebblego and BrainPopJr to our useful links. I know how much your children love using both those sites, and both can be accessed through their Clever account.  As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

During this time of extended school closings, the first grade team as put together a list of activities you and your child can do to help support their learning at home. These are activities we have done and practiced in the classroom and have sent home previously. We have included both websites and activities you do not need technology to complete. If you have any questions, please contact me.

I am so excited to teach your student this year! I am in my second year of teaching here at Gravely Elementary School. I am originally from New Jersey, and graduated from Kean University in the Spring of 2017. I love to read and explore the area right in my backyard (Washington D.C .!)
