1st Grade

DLHello, my 1st-Grade Friends!
Most of your assignments will be posted here so check back every Thursday for 1st-grade updates. I will be sending you a few assignments through Google Classroom, but because we had just begun learning how to use it, you might need your parent's help!  Please take this time to MEMORIZE you username and password and practice logging in and out every day so that when we return to school we can continue with our training!  I have bookmarked some of the links you will need for your assignments below. If you remember how to do so or with the help of a parent, bookmark this page on the device you will be using so that you can access it quickly! 
I hope you are all staying healthy and safe!  I miss you!
Ms. Palos
