Welcome

Welcome to First Grade and a special warm welcome to you if you are new to the "Liberty Family". I am very excited and look forward to teaching this school year.  This year you will be amazed with the amount of social and academic growth your child will demonstrate.  I feel strongly the home and school connection is vital in your child's success.  My classroom door is always open and I welcome any questions, concerns, or appreciations you may have. I look forward to sharing this wonderful year with your family!

Family Fun Night

Family Fun Night is a wonderful way to start the school year.  Enjoy a delicious dinner (small cost), ice cream sundaes, popcorn and a movie under stars (all free of charge).  If you are staying for the movie on the lawn make sure to bring warm clothes, small chairs and blankets. The fun starts at 6:00pm on Friday, August 23rd. Hope to see you there!

Ways to Practice Money
Sort and Name the Coins - Give your child a handful of coins. Be sure you have included pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Please have your child place each type of coin in a separate pile. Ask for the name of each coin.
Compare Values - Lay out a penny, a nickel, a dime and a quarter. Ask your child to tell you the value of each coin. For example, a nickel is worth five cents. Ask your child to tell you which coin is worth the most and the least.
How Many Do You Need? - If your child seems ready, ask questions such as, "How many pennies do you need to equal a nickel?" or "How many nickels equal a dime?"
How Much Do I Have? - This activity is for children who recognize the coins and know the value of each one. Lay out several coins (start with two, build up to several). Have your child count coins telling you the total value of the coins. It is helpful to remind your child to start with the value of the largest coin and count on. Continue to practice as you go about your daily life. For example, when out shopping with your child, discuss the amount you are giving the clerk.
