1st Grade

My name is Pamela Hansen and I am very excited to be the first grade teacher at Our Lady Queen of Apostles! First grade is a very special year where students begin to define themselves. I am excited to see how the students will grow in a positive classroom community full of encouragement, teamwork, friendships, play, and lots of learning! Students will build important reading and writing skills, master lifelong math skills, and assume responsibilities and routines.

I hope everyone is having a great summer!! I can't wait to see everyone in September!!

Please try to work on some of the handwriting sheets I sent home.

• Handwriting practice helps develop visual perception and motor skills.
• The ability to write legibly will help your child with their studies and in the workforce.
• Handwriting helps develop bilateral coordination.
• Being confident and fluid in handwriting enables your child to concentrate on the task at hand and not on mechanics.
• Your child may develop better reading and spelling skills.
