• Hello!  Welcome to Judy Compton's Classroom

    I am delighted to be your child's first grade teacher.  I have been teaching for 24 years -- five years in kindergarten and and nineteen years in first grade.  I received a Master's degree in literacy in 2005 and am a Montana Writing Project fellow.

    In my classroom, your child will be working in a variety of groups, building social skills as well as solving problems together.  Small center groups, partner-writing, individual, and whole-group instruction are incorporated throughout the day.Me and my daughters

    I believe in a balance between phonemic awareness/phonics-based skill instruction and a whole-language approach to teaching reading and writing.  Math instruction includes number concepts, addition, subtraction, place value, money, time, and fractions.   

    I highly encourage parents to get involved in the classroom -- the research consistently shows that when parents get involved, students are successful.


    Mrs. Fischer and I love teamwork!
