Welcome to a FABULOUS year of first grade!!!
Hello, I am Mrs. Wiersgalla and I am so very excited to be your fabulous first graders teacher this year. This will be my ninth year at Royalton Elementary and each year is better and better. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education from Saint Cloud State University, GO HUSKIES!!!!
My husband, children and I live in Staples, and enjoy anything outdoors. We are avid hunters/fisher people and look forward to spending time together enjoying the great outdoors. I also enjoy reading, campfires and laughing with friends and family. Especially baby giggles from our little girl and baby boy.
What to Expect
In first grade there are so many wonderful adventures your child will be experiencing in reading, math, social studies, science and art. Each week in reading, we will be learning a new set of sight words, spelling words, and a letter sound. these words will come home with your child the first day of the school week. If you have not noticed the green spelling list or sight word list come home please ask your child where they are at.
I am very much a get out and do something kind of teacher, I believe children learn more when they can experience something with their own hands. Therefore, your child will be moving around our classroom as well as getting out of the classroom to explore new concepts and topics daily.
We will also be working on using our PAWS.
P- personal best, A- act responsible, W- work and play safe, S- show respect
