WELCOME TO GRADE ONE!
My name is Melissa McBride and I am so excited to be your child’s first grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year! This is my 2nd year at EJWES and 6th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten, grade three as well as K-4 Phys-Ed, Art & Early Literacy. I was born and raised in Innisfail so I attended EJWES as well! I consider myself lucky to have one of the best jobs in the world! In grade one we learn why words are important and how to use them to create masterpieces. We also learn to count to 100 in different ways, how to do basic addition and subtraction facts, understand community responsibilities and appreciate the differences in others. I will foster your child’s natural sense of wonder about their world, seasons, creating color, living things and the five senses. We have a very exciting year of learning together and I can hardly wait to share it with you! I hope you have a fantastic summer holiday and I will see you in September!
