Welcome to First Grade in Mrs. Pantaleo’s classroom! I am so excited to have your student in my class this year! In first grade, we will learn how to read, write, understand numbers, and how numbers relate to each other. Your student will grow leaps bounds this year, as their world expands when they enter into the wonderful world of books! We will certainly get down to business to learn, but we will also have fun while we are doing it! As a teacher, I do my best to incorporate many different learning styles into my lessons to meet each student’s individual needs as he or she learns. We will continually flip/flop from whole group instruction to small group instruction throughout the day, so that your student can receive the most individualized instruction possible for success in the classroom.
