Classroom Tour

Here is a glimpse of our classroom for the 2014-2015 school year.

Here is a picture of our classroom door. Below you will see the view from our door. 

One of my favorite parts of our classroom is our library. Students are learning how to select good fit books from our library. This is where I will also be meeting with my reading groups.

Another important part of our classroom is our whole group carpet area. This is where we do most of our learning. In this area we have our SMART Board, Ladibug, and CAFE Menu.

In our classroom we use a clip chart to monitor our behavior it is located near Ms. Feuerstack's desk.

I hope you enjoyed some pictures of our classroom. More pictures for our room will be coming soon.

Our First Day

       We had a great first day of school. We spent the day getting to know each other and listening to some fun first day of school books. 
We also began Daily Five, this is how we organize our literacy block. Today we began Read to Self. This is where we independently read self selected books. I will be posting more about this shortly. We also worked on learning our rules and classroom procedures. Below you will find a few pictures from our classroom. A full tour is coming soon.

Meet Your Teacher

Dear First Grade Friends,

My name is Ms. Feuerstack and I am so excited that I will be your teacher this year. This is my 13th year teaching at Circleville Elementary School. I taught third and fourth grade before becoming a first grade teacher. I have actually taught some of your brothers and sisters. We are going to have a lot of fun this year learning together. I had a wonderful summer spending time with my family and I hope you had a fun summer as well. Here a few things about your new teacher.

1. I have 3 nephews who keep me very busy. 

2. I like to go shopping, especially at Target. I also love Dunkin' Donuts.

3. I have a very chubby cat named Hunter. 

4. I like going to the beach. My family spent a week at Myrtle Beach this summer.

5. I love cooking and watching the Food Network.

I can't wait to meet you on September 3rd for the first day of first grade. Check back often to find out what we are up to in our classroom. Pictures of our classroom will be posted soon. 

Please feel to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns. I can be reached at (845)744-2031 ext. 5500 or by e-mail at
