Back to School 2015

Welcome Back!

My name is Samantha Hall. This is my eleventh year teaching first grade. I am very excited for this school year. We will be building reading skills, writing skills, and learning new math strategies. We will also have fun with science and social studies.

Please keep coming back to the website as I update it with our monthly skills and activities as well as update the homework page weekly.

I look forward to a great year!
