2014-15 Class in Action!

Welcome to my Student Teacher, Miss Lauren Brown.  We are so happy to have you with us!  Absecon is a great district in which to learn the teaching craft.

Miss Brown and I would like to thank you for coming to Back to School Night and visiting with us.  We look forward to being a part of the teacher team with you.

The children are all settled in and the learning has begun!  This year's Firsties are WONDERFUL.  We started the year off learning the classroom rules according to Whole Brain Teaching and it has been smooth sailing.  Where has WBT been all my career?  Any teacher not using it, is missing out.  I highly suggest checking it out.  There are so many teaching videos to watch on Youtube as well as on the WBT site.  Parents may benefit from WBT too.

We are so cool just like Pete The Cat!

I actually sent the Kindergarten teachers a THANK YOU email for getting this group so ready for first grade.  I am not exaggerating when I say they are WONDERFUL!  Wow! The writing is blowing me away.  This group loves to write.  They add detail and the illustrating is second to none.  It's going to be an exciting year. 

Our literacy centers are up and running which means we are getting to read with the teacher at the reading table.  This is the most important part of the first grade year.  Each student gets to read at their level with the teacher and work on skills in centers that reinforce the language arts lessons they have learned.  CHECK US OUT!
