Welcome to Ms. Davis's 1st Grade. I Graduated from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale (SIU-C) with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education (1981). I also received my Master of Science in Early Childhood Education from SIU-C (1999). This year marks my 36th year of teaching. I have taught a variety of grades including fourth, third, kindergarten and prekindergarten. This is my first year teaching first grade.

I have lived in Massac County my entire life and am a proud 8th grade graduate of Franklin Elementary School (Class of 1973). Franklin Elementary holds a special place in my heart and I am so excited to be back at FES. I am loving teaching 1st grade. I have two daughters, Julie and Jensen and two grandsons, Bryce and Cole.

I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year. Please feel free to contact me at jdavis@massac.org.

New Information

Language Homework
(updated:  11/3/17)

 I will be giving both First Grade Classes Language homework on Wednesday every week. This homework will be worth 1 bonus point. It needs to be returned the next day (Thursday). I hope that this will help improve your child's Language grade. The children are now reading the answer choices on their own when taking the weekly Language and grammar tests.

Christmas Program
(updated:  11/8/17)

I sent home a copy of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" on Wednesday, 11/8. Both first grade classes will be performing this song at the Franklin Christmas Program on Wednesday, 12/6 @ 1:00 p.m. We have begun practicing this song in class. The students have been introduced to the actions for each verse. Please practice at home.  The students will have auditions for the part of the"Partridge in a Pear Tree" sometime during the week of November 13th.  I will assign the additional parts as well and will let you know the results on Friday, November 17th.
