Welcome to 1st Grade!

My name is Cathy Stark and this is my fifth year teaching 1st grade at Kenyon-Wanamingo Elementary.  My husband and I live in Kenyon with our two young children.  I grew up in Randolph and attended Saint Mary's University of Minnesota in Winona for my undergraduate degree and recently completed my Masters of Education in Differentiated Instruction through Concordia University, St. Paul.

First grade is a busy year for students!  We spend signficant time each day working on reading, placing focus on phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, and writing.  Additionally, students work on developing their number sense and overall math skills.  Students begin to more independently complete daily tasks and objectives.   

On the left side of the screen, you will notice several links to spelling and math websites. These are great practice tools to use at home and help make learning fun for students. I will try to add new websites throughout the school year.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year
that I can assist with.
