Welcome to Mrs. Grant's first grade news.

I have been teaching in Stanly County for 30 years.  This is my 7th year at Locust.  Previously I taught at Running Creek, Oakboro, and Millingport.  I have two children.  My husband is also a teacher.  He teaches at South Stanly Middle School.





In class… we had a busy week. In spelling, we learned how to spell words that end with -ly and -ful .  In Literacy stations, we worked on some poetry, Spring activities, & word/phonics stations. In reading, we did a unit on Fairy Tales.  Our students REALLY enjoyed qlistening to the Fairy Tales and comparing them. In math, we learned about partitioning shapes into equal parts. On Friday, we began a unit on Telling Time.  We made clocks and learned about the hands on the clock. The students are excited about Telling Time to the hour and half hour.
