The Wonderful world of Waller’s first grade


Welcome to our first grade class.  We have 22 incredibly awesome first graders in our classroom.  We spend our days learning to become better readers, writers, & math wizards!  Our day begins with planning sheets & writer’s workshop, then we transform our calendar board for the day.  After that we learn about a Science or Social Studies topic.  We love our Science Experiments the best!   Next we go to our enrichment classes where we can go to either go to Music, P.E., Art, or Technology.  Each day is a new adventure.  Once we come back from our enrichment class we have snack and Mrs. Waller reads to us from a chapter book.   Then we have shared reading & writing integrated with Science & Social Studies where we get to write with Mrs. Waller.  Next we get to follow the Mickey chart where we can have spelling practice, computers, ipad time, Awesome Board time, brain games, literacy work stations, listening center, brain games,  guided reading groups, & draft book where we get to write and publish our own books!   Then we move onto our math lesson where we often use our interactive board and then do some fun math activities.  Finally we get to go to lunch and then on to recess.  After lunch we have handwriting club, word wall practice, or read aloud while the zookeepers take care of our pets.  Next we finish our math lesson and then we have Train Your Brain time where we get to do lots of hands-on math and work with Mrs. Waller in small math groups.  Our days are NEVER dull!  We LOVE first grade!
