First Grade

Homeroom: 7
Phone: (907) 753-6223

Welcome! I am excited to be teaching the first grade neighborhood class at Turnagain Elementary School. I have taught several grade levels in the Anchorage School District and I really love teaching first graders. During the school year we work diligently to learn our Alaska State Standards in math, reading and writing. Students receive direct instruction in reading, participate in partner reading daily and use cooperative learning in math, social studies and science. We love reading books and do author studies throughout the year. We are active learners and enjoy publishing our writing on the computer and using technology in creative ways. I use an interactive, Dell Projector daily in class to teach our curriculum and we use the computer lab at least once a week. Here is a link to my Class Website
