Welcome to North Woods 1st Grade! 

I am excited for the opportunity to teach in your child’s classroom! I’m looking forward to the growth and learning that will take place during the school year. 

During Daily 5 and in Science we are learning about polar animals. As we learn about polar animals we are identifying facts that tell us about the animals and their habitats. 

Did you know that a walrus tusk can grow to be three feet long and weigh up to ten pounds? 

Did you know that porcupines use stink bombs to help keep predators away? Please ask the 1st graders what their favorite polar animal facts are. We have gathered 4 pages of facts and we are still adding to the list!
