Room 311/312's Fabulous 48!


Welcome to Room 311/312!  This is a unique classroom because we have two teachers and two grade levels.  Ms. Drinkwater (311) teaches first grade and Mrs. Eng (312) teaches second grade. We do teach two sets of standards but we also function as one class several times during the day.  We find that the first graders learn from the second graders and the second graders enrich their learning by helping and nurturing the first graders.
