Welcome to Mrs. Baker's First Grade classroom!
Dear First Grade Families,
I am excited to jump into a new school year with your children. There have been a number of changes in our school over the summer. As I orient the students to our building, I will be learning about the new and different teachers, classrooms, and technology. The focus in our room for the first few weeks is "getting to know you." The students are getting to know me and my expectations, learning about our classroom and where materials are located, and I am getting to know each individual and their special qualities.
We will be investigating with our newly adopted Science curriculum called Mystery Science. I plan to start the year talking about the exciting eclipse we all just experienced and what each child wondered, saw, and thought. During the year, we will daily be reading, writing, doing Math, and using hands-on materials to enrich those activities. I look forward to meeting each of you, letting you know the opportunities we have for involvement, and encouraging the children to STAY CURIOUS.
See you soon,
