All About Me

My name is Tayler Newberry and I am your child's first grade teacher. I am so excited for this year and to get to invest in your kiddo!

From the Teacher to You

Howdy! I hope that every one's weeks are off to a great start! I wanted to remind all parents that I am emailing out a sign up sheet for parent-teacher conferences to discuss your child's progress over last semester. If none of the times work for you, please email me. I am looking forward to catching up with everyone!

This Week in Class

This week we are covering many, exciting topics!


In Science, we are talking about weather and by the end of the week, your child should be able to record observations about the weather outside, including hot or cold, rainy or icy, calm or windy, and clear or cloudy.


In Social Studies, we are discussing important figures in the history of the United States and the effects that they have had on our history. We will be discussing George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Sam Houston, and Martin Luther King Jr.


In Reading and Language Arts, your child will be learning the components of a story. By the end of the week, they should be able to identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story. Your child will also be able to sequence a story using the beginning, middle, and end of a story.


In Math, we will be learning how to use several different methods to demonstrate their knowledge of numbers up to 120. We will be using charts, manipulatives, standard form, and expanded form.


I am looking forward to this week and I think that it will be filled with fun, excitement, and learning!
