1st Grade - Mrs. Lauren LelieuR

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 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 and Art are on Thursdays. We have music with Mrs. Goity and art with Mrs. Canda.
  • Library is on Fridays! Students may not check out a new book until the previous book has been returned. 

What we are learning:

Literacy:

*We are working on Benchmark Unit 3: Plants and Animals Grow and Change. The essential question for this unit is: How do living things change?

As you read with your child:

  • Ask your child to identify what type of text it is (fiction, non-fiction, fable, fairytale, poem)
  • Ask your child to identify the key details (big ideas) of the text. 
  • 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 and what we can learn about them by what they say, think and do.
  • Ask your child to find words with the short vowel sounds of: a, e, i, o, and u,  l blends (bl, sl, pl, cl, fl, etc.) or r blends (br, cr, dr, etc.)
  • Compare and contrast two texts.
