This week in first grade we will continue studying Antarctica and penguins.  We learned some exciting news on Friday.  There are actually 18 penguin species!  We will be learning about the White flippered penguin.  This penguin is thought to be the smallest penguin. Since we didn't get a chance to do our blubber experiment last week, we will be doing it this week.  I will send pictures.

In ELA we continue to learn about adding suffixes to root words.

In Studies we will begin our map unit.

In Mathematics we will learning about grouping 10's and ones.

Progress Reports go home on Friday.

My name is Marigrace Walker and I have had the privilege of being a part of Immanuel Lutheran School since 2006 when my oldest son Liam started middle school.. I joined the staff of ILS last year as the first grade teacher.

I received my Master's Degree in Education from Bank Street College of Education in Manhattan. My past experience includes teaching positions at The Bank Street School for Children and Rye Country Day School, and Principal of Hudson Valley Christian Academy. I have worked as the educational consultant for children's television programs including:
Dora The Explorer, Out of The Box, Salty's Lighthouse, and Blues Clues. I also worked with Donna Shalala, the then Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Clinton, developing policies and practices for Early Childhood Classrooms.

I have been married to my wonderful husband Ed for 26 years. We have three children; Liam, Evan and Emma. We also have a very goofy German Shepherd named Arka. When I am not at school I enjoy practicing Pilates and spending time with friends and family.
