Welcome to Miss Yoon's First Grade Home Page!
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."
We use a balanced literacy approach to learning. Balanced literacy instruction addresses the needs of all learners, views teachers as informed decision-makers, is flexible, and research based. A balanced literacy approach to instruction provides all students with daily opportunities to engage in various reading and writing activities to help them communicate more effectively. In a balanced literacy framework,students participate in read alouds, shared reading, guided reading, independent reading, and systematic word study. In addition, they engage in modeled writing, shared writing, guided writing, and independent writing.
We would love to celebrate your child's birthday in class. Please feel free to drop off a healthy snack for the class that follows the CELEBRATION GUIDELINES the morning of your child's birthday. Parents do not stay for the party and goody bags should not be brought in. We have 17 children in our class. You may drop off the treat in the office.
