Welcome to Ms. Johnson's first grade classroom! This is my fourteenth year teaching and I have taught grades from Kindergarten up through eighth grade. This is my second year teaching first grade.
Math Program: Our math program is called Go Math, and we piloted this program last spring, and are officially starting it this year. Students will be using addition and subtraction within 20 to solve problems.
Language Arts: Reading and writing are the most important skills your first grader will need to focus on this year. Please ensure that your child reads their decodables every night (or books at their level if they are past decodables). Please make flash cards and have them study their word list every night. There is A LOT to learn in first grade!!
