|Greetings from the Fabulous First Grade Team! Our team consists of our Bilingual Teachers- Luz Forbes, and Marina Ronan. Our Regular Ed. Teachers are Sara Hubertus, Lacy Kuhn, Jennifer Vines and EmmaDonna Griffin. We pride ourselves on teamwork! We plan together, following State guidelines, as well as district guidelines and curriculum.
Our reading curriculum is a combination of Balanced Literary, Neuhaus Phonics, and Guided Reading. We formally asses our students using the Phonemic Awareness and Phonics Inventory (PAPI) test, as well as the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) test. We use EnVision for our Math curriculum, as well as weekly Fact Frenzy tests. For our Science curriculum we use Gateways to Science.
The goal for all First Grade students is to feel safe, loved, and confident. Our priority is for each student to think for themselves, work to their full potential, and to be prepared for second grade! We always want our students to think back on First Grade as one of the best years of their life!
