Welcome to first grade! My name is Mrs. Pearson. There are so many fun and exciting things that first graders get to learn and I am so happy I get to be your teacher this year.
Here are a few things about me: I live in West Jordan with my husband and two kids. We love to go on trips together, play outside, and have movie nights.
Here is a secret you should know about first grade.... It is the very best grade in the world! I hope you are ready to work hard and have fun. I can't wait to meet you!

School Wide Expectations
Antelope Canyon has a Code of Conduct. This helps students understand school wide expectations and what will happen for following and not following those expectations. The Antelope Canyon Elementary school wide expectations are outlined below.
Come to school happy, healthy, and ready to learn! In our class, we are safe, respectful, and responsible. We focus on these three words and discuss how we can be safe, respectful, and responsible in different ways. We celebrate successful behavior daily. When a mistake or poor choice is made, we discuss what happened, decide how to make a better choice, and then make a plan.
At- Home Reading
Take-home books will come home on Monday. Students read the books during the week and return them on Friday.
Communication Folders will come home weekly on Monday with important papers and the sight words we are working on at school. Thanks for your support in helping your first grader remember to bring their folders back to school on Fridays!
Sight Words: Please take some time to practice reading the sight words (Heart words) during the week if your child does not know these words. We will provide several activities that you can use to practice these words with your child.
*Reading with your child at home is critical for their reading development. Please read with your child often.
The programs we will be using this year are FOSS science, author studies for language arts, Math Expressions, Blast Foundations for phonics/spelling, and Walk to Read for reading. We are going to be using the program Second Step for social and emotional learning. During social studies, we will be learning about different communities, cultures, and our place in this world.
