Welcome to Ms. Nelson and Ms. Hussey's First Grade Webpage!

We are excited to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 School Year! Teaching and learning in a virtual classroom is not how we would choose to start off the school year, but this is how we can do our part to keep the Whittier Community safer and healthier!  We can't wait to meet all of you in the next couple of weeks!

This year all kindergarten, first grade, and second grade classes will be using SeeSaw during remote learning. Seesaw is a Learning Management System that can be used during remote learning as well as  when we are back in the classroom. Why we love Seesaw:

  • It's a user friendly tool that students will be able to navigate independently once they have practice using it.
  • It allows teachers to schedule/post interactive assignments.
  • It allows for easy and immediate teacher-student communication , teacher-family communication, and student-student communication.
  • It also allows our class to connect with students locally, around the state, throughout the country, and even the world using the BLOG feature.

We are looking forward to an amazing school year!
