Mrs. Tabatha Hill's first grade class at Moreland Elementary School.


(First grade classes at Moreland Elementary School learned about newspapers during Career Day Friday. Below are the stories they wrote about their teachers while practicing being reporters.)

Mrs. Hill teaches first grade

Mrs. Tabatha Hill teaches first grade at Moreland Elementary on school days.

Mrs. Hill likes all the kids. She likes to make kids smart. She likes to teach math so they can get smart at math. She wants the kids to learn. When she was in school, her teacher taught her, and she wants us to be smart so she’s teaching us what her teacher taught her.

She is a good teacher. For math, we learn to measure. She has a pencil and then she puts blocks to measure it. She plays a time game. She reads books. We do activities, like we quietly learn computer activities.

She’s really smart. We like playing “Around the Room.” She lets us do really fun activities. We like when we go to specials after lunch, at the end of the day, like PE.

She teaches every day in the classroom next door at Moreland Elementary. She wants us to learn. She teaches us so we can grow up to be really smart. She teaches us because we don’t know stuff but she does so she teaches us that.

She helps us learn by doing science experiments, practicing sight words at calendar time, by using the iReady computer program, in small groups, by reading to us and through math quizzes and tests.

Mrs. Janet Johnson teaches the whole class and helps us with stuff like math and reading.

She teaches when we need help with something. She teaches from 8 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

She teaches because she loves helping people learn and because she wants us to get smarter. She teaches us because we need to know things.

In math, she teaches us to add and subtract by using different items and strategies like tally marks, touch points and coins. She teaches us reading by reading together and by ourselves, and by reading to us. In math, we do "Number of the Day." We do iReady math and reading on our Chromebooks. We like to do unit studies on interesting things like sharks.
