New class!! 2011-2012
Can you believe we just finished the 1st week of the school year? What a FABULOUS group of firsties! There are 16 kids that rock my world each day and I cannot wait until tomorrow to see them again. We worked on getting to know one another. We practiced some literacy stations and heard some awesome stories. I think the favorite was Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon. They were captivated by the pictures and we were so happy the bully changed his ways by the end of the story. We worked with making 4 and 5 and used our ActivExpression each day. Our scientists were working on learning lab tools and we talked about our families. It was a great week. Check out the wordle and see all the fabulous firsties!
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
