I am back teaching 1st grade! This year I have a smaller class which is wonderful. Room 220 also has 2 sets of windows so it is very bright and cheerful. I have 2 daughters Quinn and Keiran, ages 15 and 12. Quinn has already met the class! This is my 24th year teaching, 19 years as a Librarian and 5th year as a 1st Grade Teacher. I’m looking forward to a great year!
Hello Room 220 Families!
Summer is coming to an end, but I am excited to get the school year started! We are going to have a great year together! Please refer to South Loop’s website for the supply list to set your child up for success this school year.Here are a few ideas to help get your child get ready for the first days of school:
- Help your child get back on a school schedule so they will be well rested and have a great start to the year! First graders do not nap but we sure do have a lot of fun learning!
- Talk with your child about some learning goals for first grade. What do they want to learn? What do they hope first grade will be like?
- Ask your child to think of something exciting from the summer to share with the class. Did you take any trips? Who did you spend time with?
I look forward to meeting you and your child on the first day of school–Tuesday, September, 3rd! Have a great last few weeks of summer!
