First Grade Instruction Project

We are very excited to be in the process of closing our Kindergarten Instruction Project and moving this project to the first grade level. All 2004-05 first grade teachers will be receiving similar professional development opportunities as our kindergarten teachers experienced this past year. First grade teachers have already spent their first two days in training with Darla Wood-Walters this March and most recently, they have visited our current kindergarten classrooms. These classroom visitations give teachers the wonderful opportunity to see the amazing work that the students are currently doing and a clear idea of the incredible readers and writers they will be receiving next fall. There will be another full day of training with Darla this May and a week long instructional institute in June.
