Hello! My name is Lauren Moran and this will be my second year teaching at DES. I am thrilled to be making the switch to teaching 1st grade! We have had a wonderful start to the school year and I look forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring with this amazing group of kiddos! Here's a little bit about what we have been learning so far:
Reading - We’ve been reviewing short vowel sounds and how to blend sounds into words, as well as reviewing Kindergarten sight words and introducing some new sight words. Every day, we put these skills to work with our reading activities.
Math - Adding two numbers with sums within 10 using strategies like counting on.
Fundations/Writing - Reviewing how to write lowercase letters. We also published two class books!
Science: We’ve started working with our Amplify Science program and are learning how plants and animals survive.
