Ms. Grant Grade 1

We go outside for recess each day (unless it is below zero degrees or raining).  Please make sure that your child has snow boots, a hat, mittens/gloves, and snow pants.  Each day there have been several children that were not prepared for the weather.  Sneakers/shoes are needed for inside and several children have been forgetting these too.  Thanks 

 Reading Logs and books will go home  every week, starting on Monday, October 21st.  Please keep these to practice reading and return them on Thursday of each week.  I can send a new book home each night of the week, if your child wants to read each night. Eventually it will be an expectation that each student will read each night.    Generally, folders will go home on Tuesdays and Fridays (more frequently if needed).

Class Code


Building a sense of safe and respectful classroom community includes simple group activities that help the children get to know each other better.  Guided discovery is a method by which areas of the room or classroom materials are introduced slowly and deliberately to the whole class. 

In a responsive classroom setting, teachers see mistakes (in academics and in behavior) as important steps in learning. They encourage students to learn from their mistakes and “try again.” They offer support and reteach as needed. At the same time, teachers provide clear expectations for behavior and stop misbehavior quickly so that students can focus on learning.

*We also collect box tops.  Please check out the website for further information.
