1st Grade


Mrs. Perry was born into Salem congregation and is a lifetime member of Salem Lutheran Church. She began her career at Salem Lutheran School in 1964 when she entered first grade in the very classroom she teaches in now. A calling to teach God’s children lead Mrs. Perry to major in Child Development at Cal State Northridge. She has taught Spanish, Remedial Reading, and directed the Day Care at Salem before joining the full time teaching staff in 1998. For the past eighteen years Mrs. Perry has been enjoying teaching the first graders at Salem.


First Grade is using our writing skills. 

May means expanding our writing skills in First Grade.

In Open Court Reading we are increasing our comprehension skills. We are now answering questions, drawing conclusions and responding to the literature in our Anthologies.  Our Tenth Unit  “Homes” will contain many interesting poems and stories, biography and art, all helping us to cement our skills as we explore literature related to homes for people and animals around the world.

In Math we are also practicing our skills as well as memorizing our last sets of Math facts and beginning subtraction. Our lessons will also include telling time, coin counting, even and odd numbers, fractions, patterning, geometry, measurement, calendar, and mathematical reasoning.

Our D’Nealian Handwriting is getting better and better. The smooth and curving strokes make our work look neat and careful as we prepare for cursive in second grade.

In Social Studies we are learning about our government.

In Science we are learning about the three states of matter.

We will enjoy going to Music, Art, Spanish,Computer and P.E. for more learning fun!

We are so excited to be in First grade!
