Dear First Graders

Dear First Graders,

  I am glad that you found our class blog. I am so happy that you stopped by. I am very excited to be your new teacher and to meet you on September 6th for the first day of first grade. I have been very busy getting our classroom ready for a fun and exciting year. I will be posting pictures shortly. While you are here you can take our survey on the left of the page and you can leave a comment below and tell me a little about yourself and your feeling about first grade. I can't wait to meet you. Enjoy the last few days of summer vacation.

Common Core

Last year our school began teaching using the common core standards. On the right our our blog you will see a common core app that will give you an opportunity to see what your child is going to be expected to do this year. Just click on the app and choose math or language arts. I will talk more about the common core standards and our learning expectations when we meet at open house. To learn more about specific New York State standards you can also visit
