Christa Stedeford - First Grade

Dear First Grade Families,

To best utilize the time out of our classroom due to the closure of the district, I have compiled lessons the students can work on during the time off. They should be able to complete most of the work independently, but will need your help with directions, what to accomplish each day, etc.I will also post information on my school web page. Please be sure to send all workbook pages and books back to school the day we return, as we will need them as part of our classroom learning. Thank you for helping keep the students on track and learning during this break in routine. I look forward to a quick return to learning in our classroom. Thank you so much for your support.
