First Grade

April 20th Update:
Today begins our first day of "virtual learning"! Please visit our Virtual Learning Page to access all materials. As mentioned before, each week a Choice Board will be uploaded to this page. These activities are completely OPTIONAL. You may do these with your child at any time throughout the week. Each day, we will also be uploading an instructional video - with each day being a different focus topic. 

You are not required to turn in any of this work, however if you would like to send picture or videos of what you've been working to me, I would be happy to see and give feedback to students on their work! You can send it on Dojo, or email at

We will continue to have our weekly Wednesday Zoom meeting at 2:00PM where we will continue practicing what we've learned this year, answer any choice board questions, and OF COURSE have fun together! :)

I miss you all immensely! Stay safe and stay healthy! <3

April 13th Update:
I hope you all are enjoying your last day of spring break!!! This week’s newsletter is posted for you. Please do not do any work today, but know it is available for you to use tomorrow!

Starting next Monday (April 20th), we will be posting Choice Boards for you to use. These will include OPTIONAL activities for you to work on with your child. I also will be posting virtual review lessons if you would like to use those with your child.

Our weekly Zoom meetings will continue! These will be held every Wednesday at 2:00PM. I will send the link the day before to you via email or Dojo, so please be on the lookout!

I hope you all were able to enjoy some quality family time during “spring break.” I know this one was different, but hope it was healthy for all! I’ve missed the kids’ faces and can’t wait to see them via Zoom again soon! :)

April 3rd Update:
I hope you all are continuing to stay healthy!!

Next week is our scheduled "Spring Break". Please note that all optional academics and class Zoom meetings will be paused for the next week. Please take the time to enjoy your families!

Starting April 20th, we will be posting choice boards for you to use with your child. I will be posting them in the Newsletters/Choice Boards folder. Check back the week of the 20th for more information!

Miss you all!!

March 25th update:

  • As you all know, all schools in Virginia are closed for the remainder of the year. I am saddened that our time in Room 102 has come to an end, and miss you all terribly! I hope you and your families are doing well. Please continue to stay home, stay safe, and stay healthy! I can't wait to see everyone whenever school resumes again!

    I have added different resources to this page to help and guide you during this "at home learning" time.
  • "Helpful Documents" - Here you can find the first grade pacing guide in both English and Spanish. These documents help you see what the students have learned so far this year.  You can also find a document with YKES online resources.
  •  "Useful Links", you will find some online resources that you can use at home to review topics. 
  •  "Weekly Newsletters", you will find a copy of the first grade newsletter. These will be added each week to give you more support and resources to use at home!

    Please know that you are in my thoughts every day! All resources posted here are optional activities for you. Please keep you and your child's health #1!

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at, or send me a message on Class Dojo!
