The Learning Pond Express

Welcome to Mrs. Oveal's First Grade Class!

Spring has Sprung!

Our class could not be more excited that we are now! The weather has been great and we are catching sightings of butterflies and ladybugs everywhere. With this being said, we are making new explorations in the wonderful world of nature. This month we will focus on the following:

Language Skills
Sight word Recognition
Sequencing events
Fluency and expression when reading independent level texts


Subtraction readiness using part-whole method

Social Studies/Science
Spring weather changes
How flowers grow

Conference time is almost here!

Conferences are a vital part of parent-teacher communication. In order to maximize the time we are given, please make sure:

1.) You are on time to your child's conference. Conferences are scheduled back to back and we do NOT want to miss any second of it!
2.) Write down any questions you may want to ask.

I look forward to meeting with you!
