1st Grade News

We have an incredible college student volunteering in our classroom and we are so grateful!  Five days a week he works with my first graders, lending a hand and an extra pair of eyes to attend to the needs of 21 kiddos.  He read one on one with each child and took notes about individual reading skills while listening to them read aloud.  He's developed exciting, interactive math lessons and spent time playing games with groups during math workshop.  Last week, students worked on animal research book reports and he worked with small groups to locate animal facts on classroom iPad's.  Most importantly, he took time to get to know each child and provided extra attention and support. 

We will be sad when this wonderful future educator has to leave us.
