1st Grade - Mrs. Lauren LelieuR

Add an image to this page

 Welcome to First Grade!

This is my fourth year as a Beresford Bear but my eleventh year teaching. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Studies and a Master of Science degree in Educational Psychology. At Beresford, I am a member of the HET team, PBIS team, and School Site Council. 

I grew up in the Washington D.C. area, where I taught first grade, second grade, and third grade. My family moved to the Bay Area in the summer of 2013 to be closer to family.  

I live in San Mateo with my husband Chris and daughter Molly.  When I'm not teaching I spend time traveling, cheering for the Washington Nationals and Washington Redskins, rocking out to classic rock music,  running after Molly and spending time with family and friends. 

MESSAGES FROM MRS. LELIEUR: 

*Please sign up for a parent-teacher conference in November. If none of the available times work please let me know. 

* Please make sure that students bring a water bottle to school every day. 

*  Please make sure to attend the Monday morning announcements in the LGI.

* When students return their "take home book bag" to school they may choose a new book to bring home to read.

*Music is on Thursdays. We have music with Mrs. Goity.

* Library is on Fridays! Students may not check out a new book until the previous book has been returned. 

What we are learning:

*We watched a video series about how students can develop a growth mindset! Watch it at: www.classdojo.com/BigIdeas, and ask your child these questions: 

1. What was the biggest challenge you faced today?

2. How does it feel when you make a mistake?

3. What is one challenge you've faced that has helped grow your brain?

4. What could you say instead of "I can't do this"?

Literacy:

*We are working on Benchmark Unit 1: Being a Good Community Member. The essential question for this unit is: Why do people get involved in their communities?

Ask your child what sound the short a makes? ( /æ/ like apple, cat, hat, etc.)

*Ask your child what a common noun is. (a person, place or thing)

*Ask your child what a proper noun is (a specific person, place or thing, ex: Beresford School, Disneyland, Mrs. Lelieur)

As you read with your child:

* Ask your child how they can tell the difference between fiction and non-fiction books.

* Ask your child what is the job of the author (writes the words) and illustrators(draws and colors the pictures).

*Ask your child to make a prediction (a good guess) while they are reading.

*Ask your child to ask questions while they are reading. 

*Ask your child to identify characters, setting, problem and solution while reading.
