Ms. Doby's Fabulous First Graders


                 Ms. Doby's Fabulous First Graders   

I am so happy to have your child in my classroom this school year.  I grew up in Rowan County, and feel humbled to be a part of Rowan Salisbury Schools.  I have taught at Faith Elementary for the last 13 years and have been a teacher for 19 years.  We are going to have a fantastic year full of growth and exciting learning opportunities.  Please don't ever hesitate to email me or call with any concerns.Together, we can help your child to have a successful year.  

All of the students are adjusted to first grade, and we are working hard!  This month we will work on retelling the beginning, middle and endings of stories.  We are also reading/comparing fables and fairy tales in reading. Students are enjoying trying to figure out the "moral of the story" while reading fables.  Our focus this month is on oral and written comprehension. 

In math, we are still learning to add numbers.  We are solving real world word problems that include up to 3 numbers.  We are also continuing to work on base ten and reviewing shapes.

In science we are learning about force.  Students are participating in STEM projects that reinforce the concept.

This month we will also write letters to veterans to honor their service to our country.  

welcome to First Grade!  I am honored to have your child in my class this year!
