• Welcome To Mrs. Dunaj's  1st Grade!
    What an exciting fall we have had in first grade! We are really learning to work together as a strong classroom community.  In Reading, we are using our good reading habits every day as well as learning to use strategies to solve tricky words in books. We became Word Detectives and solved clues to change words into new words! We are working hard to remember our letter sounds and have added new digraphs. So far we have learned -sh,    -ch, -th, -wh, and -ck. 
    We are growing as writers and focusing on personal narratives and small moments. Students are intent on adding details to their work and are beginning to learn to edit their own work!  We are working with reading and writing partners to learn to peer edit 
    We have a daily snack in our classroom. Please remember to send in a small, healthy snack each day.
    Our Specials Schedule is as follows:
    Monday: Music
    Tuesday: Art
    Wednesday: Spanish
    Thursday: Gym
    Friday: Technology, Yoga, and Gym
    **Recess will be held daily.  Please be sure to wear or bring sneakers.
    In addition to information about homework,  my website will provide details of upcoming events, long term assignments, class rules, and overall expectations in first grade.  I hope you find the information useful.
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  All emails and phone calls will be returned within 24 hours.
    Thanks so much!
