Welcome to Mrs. Grant's first grade news.

I have been teaching in Stanly County for 29 years.  This is my 6th 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.




               Spring is Here!  

In class… we had a busy week. We had Spring individual and class pictures made on Thursday.  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 an Author Study on Patricia Polacco. We read Thunder Cake, Thank You Mr. Faulker, Rechenka’s Eggs,  and some of her other books.  In math, we are learning strategies for adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers. Please practice this skill at home with your child for extra practice.
