Welcome to First Grade at Coyote Ridge Elementary! We are so excited to be your child’s 1st grade teachers! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of new experiences. We uphold high expectations for all our students to ensure they reach their full potential. Our main goals are to enhance reading and writing skills using Benchmark Advance along with excelling in math concepts in Everyday Math 4. Students will have the opportunity for whole group and small group instruction along with collaboration time with peers. Our Second Step program supports social-emotional learning through growth-mindset, productive coping skills, empathy, and conflict-resolution in our classroom community. We strive to teach our students to be kind, caring, and respectful to each other along with owning responsibility at school. We encourage and practice being supportive to each other academically and socially. Most importantly, we want our students to feel confident and enthusiastic at Coyote Ridge. We can’t wait to see how much your child will achieve in 1st grade…it’s going to be amazing!
