My name is Heather Denune and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. I graduated from the University of Houston-Clear Lake with a bachelors degree in early childhood education. I am certified to teach Pre K-4th grade as well as ESL and Gifted and Talented. I love being a first grade teacher and seeing the excitement and growth that occurs during this year. I have two daughters, Reese and Saige as well as a hard working husband and two golden retrievers that ALL keep me very busy! I enjoy coffee, reading, running and spending time with my family when I'm not teaching. I know this year will be a great one and you will see a lot of growth and learning in your child. Get ready to see your child "build a bridge to the future!"

Book Orders

Class Code - MH2RB
Order Due Date - 09/29/17
 
Dear Families,
 
I want your child to be a successful reader—and for that, I need your help.
 
When children choose their own books to read for pleasure, they enjoy reading more and spend more time doing it. The more your child reads, the better they will do in school and in life.

 
Scholastic Book Clubs flyers are made for you and your child to shop for books your child will love to read. Each month, the flyers are filled with trusted, excellent quality, age-appropriate books chosen by Scholastic for prices as low as one dollar.

 
Plus you will be helping our class when you order: Scholastic matches each order you place with FREE BOOKS for our classroom to share.

 
Thank you for helping your child become a successful reader.
 
Sincerely,
Mrs. Denune

Math Games to play at home

Good Afternoon,
 
These are some fun math games we will be trying in class. It's important for students to be able to add to 10 quickly (aka number bonds). This helps them with many other math skills we will be learning. Have fun with these games.

Spelling Test Coming Soon

We will begin spelling test the week of 9/11. Our first test will be on 9/15. It will consist of 10 words. We will be studying the patterns/rules of words. We are teaching your child HOW to spell; not WHAT to spell. We will not be giving a list of words but rather the patterns. (If you know cat, you know bat, sat, mat, fat etc). Your child will practice generating words in class based on the patterns and you will be given a word bank of example words. The words are all CVC words. Sight words will be on the word wall for your child to use as a reference during the test. This has worked great in the past and I know your child will be successful as well. 
 
9/11 short a
9/18 short i
9/25 short o
10/2 short e 
10/9 short u
 
More information will be coming home on Friday. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Welcome to first grade

 I am SO excited to be your child's first grade teacher. First grade is so special to me. It is a year of excitement, growth and learning. I'm a mom first, so I always understand your concerns or questions. My first goal for your child is to LOVE school, reading, writing and math. I can't wait to meet you and your precious baby. Please come to meet the teacher on AUGUST 18th 4-5:30. 
You can drop off supplies, get a look at the classroom (always a work in progress) and find your child's desk (always subject to change). You can also sign up for PTO on this day. 

Excited for another great school year! 

Mrs. Denune
