Last June, Grade 1 teachers compiled a list of Grade 1 resources that were at
their school. Unfortunately, copies of these resource lists were not kept. If you still
have your school’s resource list, please forward it to Lhasa Houliston at FEC
Please let me know if you do not have a copy of Prompting Guide 1.
As your resources that were ordered over the summer start to arrive, HOORAY, I
would like to extend an invitation to help you unpack (physically & figuratively)
your new resources. Getting to know your resources can be a daunting and
time consuming task and I would like to assist you in any way that I can. Please
contact me if you are interested in scheduling a time.
