Orwell Village Elem School
Class Information:
Room Number: 1
Students per Class: 15
Class Description:
We are a class of delightful, motivated learners. We enjoy adventures and exploring through hands-on activities but we also love to read as well as listen to stories. We share our skills by mentoring classmates and other students whenever an opportunity presents itself. We love our town and hope to learn a lot more about it through investigation this year.
First Grade Teacher
While we are fortunate to have several classroom computers, we lack cameras and equipment (photo paper, ink, binding materials, laminator and material, etc.) that would enable us to publish materials exhibiting our work (both digitally and on paper). We would really like to be able to write and publish picture books for younger children.
