Welcome to Mrs. Owen's First Grade
 
Hello and thanks for stopping by!  This is a nifty place to get all the latest news about my "Fabulous Firsties"! Teaching is my passion and I'm so thrilled to get to work with the BEST first graders in Tomball!
 
This is my 24th year of teaching (my 16th in first grade), but my first year in Tomball ISD. I'm excited and blessed to be here at Wildwood Elementary.  
I graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Elementary Education. I am also a certified reading specialist, national presenter for STEM education, and GT certified teacher.
When I'm not in the classroom, I'm usually on court. My second passion is tennis. I am a certified tennis pro and I love to play year 'round, all across the greater Houston area!
I'm married to my college sweetheart and we have one fur-baby, Bella, who keeps us constantly entertained. (And she loves the fact that she has an endless supply of tennis balls to play with in the backyard!)
 
I know this is going to be a wonderful year, filled with laughter, learning, and love.  I adore Firsties and am always amazed and delighted by their endless excitement and wonder about the world.
 
My "door is always open" if you ever have a question or just want to have a conversation about your first grader.  I truly believe we are a team in educating your child. Your input and inquiries are always welcome. 
 
Here's to a "Fabulous Firstie" year!
Mrs. Owen

Halfway to Second Grade!

Hello!
Can you believe we've already been in school over 100 days?!?  Not only are these amazing students growing dendrites like crazy, but they are growing INCHES (taller), too!
The second semester is a busy one and it's incredible to "see" how things just start to "click"--they are reading better, writing neater, problem-solving faster.
 
It's going to be an exciting last few months of first grade!  Here we go....

Thanksgiving Performance--Poetry and Pies!

Hello!
I'm so excited to be able to present my Fabulous Firsties in a Thanksgiving poetry program!
We will be entertaining our guests with poems and songs on Thursday, November 15th.  This even will take place in our classroom and will start promptly at 10:20. The performance itself will last about 15-20 minutes and then we will all share a bit of pie and good company! We have to be finished by 11am so they can stay on schedule for lunch at 11:19.
 
I hope you can attend!

Book Orders!

Hello!
I'll be placing a Scholastic Book order this weekend. There are some wonderful (inexpensive) books available in the September fliers.  If you'd like to click over to www.scholastic.com and use our class code LPJCF, you can browse the fliers, order, and pay online! The books should arrive at school within 2 weeks.
Scholastic should be sending me fliers to send home starting in October.
I just thought I'd let you know I'm putting in an order this weekend, in case anyone wanted to order.
Thanks so much!
Mrs. Owen
