Welcome to Room 1514!
I look forward to another year at Capitol Hill. Every year I feel more a part of the Capitol Hill family as I get to know more students. It is exciting to now know names and faces of former students all the way up to the eighth grade! I also look forward to working with our new first grade students and their families this year. : )
Students will be learning new reading and writing skills, strengthening their math thinking, and broadening their knowledge of science concepts and the world around them.
We work very hard to establish our classroom community as a safe and fun place to learn. We will be using components of Yoga Calm, as well as, other wellness strategies to teach students ways to keep their body, heart, and mind healthy. We will get off to a great start, and work to be the best Cougar cubs we can be; Respectful, Responsible, Safe, Kind, and Mindful.
We have many exciting units of study in our first grade curriculum...Phenology, Economics, Cultures and Traditions, Biographies, and more.
