A day in the life: Emily Crisorio’s first grade

Student reading a book with Ms. Crisorio.

Visit our district Facebook page to take a look at a typical day of learning in Emily Crisorio’s first grade here at Giffen. 

Students were hard at work on their English Language Arts (ELA) skills the morning of Dec. 20. The lesson began with a group activity on the carpet before students moved to their desks to work on rhyming and vowel sound exercises. As they finished their hands-on activity, students traded glue sticks and scissors for stories as they engaged in some quiet reading.
