Welcome To Our Grade 1 Blog!

Welcome to our class blog! I’m excited to share with you here what’s happening in our Grade 1 class. Please feel free to add questions or comments after reading any of the posts. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Since I'm new at Dr. Davey, I hope this photograph will help you recognize me on the first day of school.

Here is a video tour of our classroom. I forgot to mention that there is a shelf at the front of the room where students can put their pencil cases if they bring them in. Notebooks and folders will be stored in bins for students to access when they need them.

Have a great summer! I look forward to seeing everyone on September 2nd! It’s going to be a wonderful year at school.

  1. Wow just read the link to the article in the spectator! Great job Miss Dunsiger! That was refreshing to read and congrats on receiving the Prime ministers teaching award:)

  2. I love this video! Such a nice way to welcome your students and have parents learn about the space their children will be in! Your reading corner is lovely! One question: what is the popcorn song? I know the popcorn words from fdk, is there a song on YouTube? All the best to you next week, Aviva!

    • Thank you so much for the comment, Tracey! I actually blogged on my professional blog about the thinking behind my choices. I can’t wait for the students to come and really make the room their own.

      As for THE POPCORN SONG, here’s a link to the words: https://missdunsiger.commons.hwdsb.on.ca/wp-content/blogs.dir/3156/files/2014/08/The-Popcorn-Song.pdf You sing it to the tune of MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB. Often the words are written up and down instead of across, but I like to teach students that when we read, we read left to right, up and down, and so I changed the formatting of the song. It’s a silly song with no real meaning, but the students learn to point to the words as they sing them, and this really helps them find the words when they need them. Hope this helps!
