WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE
My name is Jennipher Smith. I have been teaching first grade at Albion Elementary School for 22 years. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education (with a concentration in Language Arts/Literature) from the University of Maine at Farmington and also earned an Early Literacy Learing Initiative (ELLI) certificate thru Ohio State University. I also participate in Continued Professional Development offered thru MSAD#49. First grade is an exciting grade to teach. I absolutely love watching the growth students make during their first grade year.
First Grade Supply List: (optional)
At School it would be helpful if each student has:
*A backpack or bag (to carry supplies and homework to and from school in)
*A Lunchbox or Bag (for snacks or cold lunch)
At Home it would be helpful if each student has:
*Notebook or writing/drawing paper
*Designated area/place to complete homework
*15-20 minutes and a quiet space to read each day/night
