Welcome to our classroom blog! I will post pictures, updates, and weekly newsletters here on this site. I will also post links that we use in class, or other websites that I think are helpful for students to use at home at any point in time! Thanks for checking in! :) 

Please email me at any time with questions and comments.

Summer Fun! 

  • Read, read read! (and be read to!)

  • Have interactive books read to you online. Go to: http://www.tumblebooklibrary.com/  and use the username: rumney and password: books.

  • Keep a journal about what you do this summer—write and draw pictures!

  • Go outside, observe what you see.

  • Count anything you can find!

  • Look for words and numbers when you’re out and about.

  • Look at money and notice pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters as you use it!

  • Look around your family and/or neighborhood and see how you could help others.

  • Take time to relax and enjoy yourself—it’s summer!

  • Run, play, laugh.

Hello! My name is Christine Babcock (Ms. Babcock). This will be my fourth year teaching at Rumney. I received my undergraduate degree from Hobart and William Smith Colleges , as well as teaching certifications in Elementary and Special Education. I am finishing working on my Masters in Education through Southern New Hampshire University this summer. This program is wonderful because it allows me to apply my learning directly into our classroom!

Outside of school, I live in Berlin and love to do anything outside. My favorite activities are hiking, skiing, camping and biking. I also love to read and knit! :)  I grew up in Connecticut, and my parents still live there. I enjoy visiting them for occasional weekends and holidays!  I have a younger brother named Charlie, who lives in Colorado. I visit him less frequently than my parents, but am still quite close with him. This summer I did some traveling, read for pleasure (Harry Potter) and to get ready for school, kayaked and hiked. 

Throughout the school year, please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I believe that partnership between parents and teachers is an important part of a child's education. I look forward to getting to know you and working together!
