See you soon!
After many years in Room 101, I will be spending the remainder of the summer moving all of my classroom materials up to Room 207! It will be a BIG change, but I'm excited to be with the rest of the first grade team!
See you soon!
2016-2017 End of the Year Slideshow
Thank you for a great year!!
This afternoon we enjoyed visiting Mrs. Tolbert's second grade classroom to learn all about life as a second grader. Mrs. Tolbert told us all about Accelerated Reader, the math games they will play, using Chromebooks in the classroom, the fun science experiments and activities they will partake in - including Rube Goldberg activities, landforms, animal research projects, etc., and so much more.
Students were so excited to see a second grade classroom and meet a second grade teacher.... and to find out they will still have homework next year!
Be sure to ask your student about his/her visit with the amazing Mrs. Tolbert.
Willett participates in a Community Day each year where students do something nice for members of the community. The first grade chose to deliver "whaley special gardens" to the Police Station, Fire Station, and City Hall. Mrs. Dooley's class and my class delivered our garden to the Fire Station (with the help of Mrs. Ferney and Mrs. B). We were very spoiled by being able to check out the pumper truck, ladder truck, and ambulance! The firefighters also showed us other cool tools they use! Thank you so much to the Attleboro Fire Department!!
Mrs. Brown came to Willett today to talk to us about the Community-Wide Summer Reading Program! On June 21st (our last day of school) students can go to Balfour River Park for a FREE Kick Off Party to sign up for the Summer Reading Program. There will be games, activities, door prizes, etc.
If you can't attend the party, stop by the Attleboro Public Library any day before July 31st to sign up for the Summer Reading Program! Students will receive a calendar to check off each day they have read 15+ minutes. When a student reads 15+ on 10 different days, the Library will donate a book (to the Library) in your student's name!
When you sign up, you will also receive a green sheet of paper that talks about all the fun and FREE activities the Library will be hosting this summer!
Please be sure to check it out, and READ READ READ this summer! :)
Today, with the help of Mrs. Gattoni, we planted cucumbers and pumpkins in the Willett garden. These plants were started in our classroom and were ready to be transplanted before the weekend! If you come to Family Fun Day tomorrow, be sure to check out our plants!
*Some children chose to take their plants home instead of planting them in the garden.
Mrs. Bower is a First Grade Teacher who loves her family, her dog Rocco, teaching, the Patriots, and being outside!
