Welcome to First Grade!
It is my pleasure to be teaching your children this year. The students are
off to a great start. They have made a smooth transition to first grade.
I would like to highlight some of the activities taking place in the class as we are
all striving to meet the goals of the new Common Core Standards.
This is possible through many new programs that have been implemented in our school district.
Our Journeys literacy program is comprehensive program incorporates
phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing.
In Math, we will be working on numbers and numeration, greater than, less
than, patterns, and problem solving. Math manipulatives, hands-on activities, interactive technology
and games are continually being integrated throughout the new Envision Math Program.
For Science, we will be utilizing the Science Fusion online, interactive program. The students will be
conducting various hands-on experiments.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. If you have any
questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to drop me a line. My door is
always open to you. I look forward to a very rewarding and productive school
Mrs. J. Ramirez
