PLEASE begin sending in field trip money as soon as you are able!
Water Day is our next Celebration on Friday, September 6th.
Your Child will need:
30 dojo points
change of clothes, underwear and shoes to go home in.
To keep first graders from needing to change clothes twice in one day, please have them WEAR what they are to get wet in.
A bag to bring wet clothes home in.
Students will need to have earned a specific amount of dojo points to get to participate in each celebration. If it does not look like your child will get to participate, I will be having lots of talks with him/her (developing a plan for them to find opportunities to earn dojo points) as well as getting in touch with you by Wednesday of celebration week.
We will send home spelling words as we conclude review on August 26th. We will also begin our and ELA Guided Reading Groups! **Please help us to best grow your child by insuring that they are well rested and present EACH DAY during all of our instructional times throughout the day!**
We strive to have new nonsense words in sight word folders every Monday!

These are great to keep and reread over the summer break!Math:We are working on building number knowledge up to 20.

Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amanda Coburn
I graduated from Lees-McRae College, class of 2017 with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I am from Catawba County, and am excited to be a part of Lincoln County schools! This is only my third year of teaching, but I have been working with children of all ages for over 15 years.
I have two sons, ages 11 and almost 14. We love sports and outdoor activities. Bryant plays football, wrestling and baseball. Cody is working toward his Jiu Jitsu yellow belt and working with the Little Devils Wrestling Program in the Spring! I enjoy riding 4-wheelers with friends, hiking, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
First grade is an exciting adventure! I look forward to seeing each young person in our class grow this year!
