All permission forms have been signed so we are ready to BLOG!

The purpose of this blog is to provide a showcase for activities in our classroom, student writing and art work and to provide school to home communication. I hope that students, families, and friends will leave comments after any of the posts on this blog. Just type into the comment box after the post. You do not need to include your email address here. To protect the privacy of our students, their work will only be identified by their initials. When you post a comment, please don’t include your surname. Just sign it as “A.R.’s Mom,” or “J.D.’s Grandpa” etc. All comments will be moderated by Ms. Fellbaum before they appear in the blog. PLEASE write us a comment. It is very motivating for the children to know that someone will be viewing their work.

Children should always be supervised when using the Internet. The intent of the website links included in this blog and on our website is to provide appropriate, and informative links. The safety of our children is paramount. Please report any link of concern immediately. Any ads, pop-ups, or inappropriate links that may appear are not endorsed by Ms. Fellbaum.

We are excited to begin.

1F was a very busy classroom last week as we worked on getting to know each other and reviewing some basic concepts. Hopefully the adjustment of coming to school every day was not too overwhelming. I certainly was impressed by the eager smiles greeting me each morning.

The first week was filled with many new adventures for 1F students like getting a table spot, using our pencil cases, getting to go to music class with Mrs. Dalley for the first time and finding our new bus locations at the end of the day. I am looking forward to continued new adventures in week two.

I have attached some fun websites for students to try at home below.

Welcome to 1F!

Dear Grade One Families,
Welcome to our Grade One Classroom Blog! My name is Lise Fellbaum and I will be your child's teacher this year. I am very excited to begin our grade one journey together and look forward to our many adventures ahead. Grade One can be a big change as students move from a play based learning environment into a more structured learning environment. But don't worry, we stil have a great deal of fun in Grade one!
I have left last years' classroom blog posts on our blog to give parents an opportunity to look around and see what kind of information we posted last year. I will be sending home a form to be signed that gives me permission to post your child's photo, audio files and/or videos we make in class. Names can never be posted with photos. Students love to see their pictures and share our activities with parents and other family members. Please call me at school if you have any concerns or questions with the blog.
I look forward to working with you throughout the year ahead.
Lise Fellbaum
