Students will look closely at pictures and do "close reads" with books. They will practice expressing what they notice and wonder and will often have partner or group discussions. Through this practice they will learn how to express their own point of view and build on others ideas.
We will build important reading and writing skills and at the end of the year students should be able to attempt to write and spell new words phonetically, read and write common words such as where and every, and write complete sentences with correct capitalization and punctuation.
"Hello! My name is Hunter Caldwell. I am looking forward to meeting and growing with all of you as this is also my first year in the first grade! Until now I taught middle school math.
I graduated from Weber State with a Bachelors of Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics. Currently, I am pursing my Masters degree in Educational Technology. I have always loved school. Growing up my teachers were my greatest role models and I always knew I wanted to become them one day. I want to foster my love of learning and share it with your child so that they feel inspired and empowered in their education.
Outside of being a teacher I have many hobbies including climbing, musical theater, traveling, yoga, and camping. I love listening to music and singing in the car. You might find me at The Front, Powder Mountain, Grounds for Coffee, or in a tent somewhere."
Be somebody who makes everyone feel like somebody.
