Ms. Solano’s Class

Week 18

We had a great week of learning! We got to spend some more time in the garden, see some seeds germinate, make compost, and continue our hard work with math, letters, and sílibas!

Week 17

Students enjoyed learning about Phillipines through our new story Cora Cooks Pancit, First grade starting learning about 3-d shapes, and both groups combined their love of poetry and plants to make Haikus. As always, they worked hard together and had fun. Such amazing kids!

Week 16

Even though we had a short week we did a lot of learning and exploring! We started learning about Korea to kick off AAPI month and students finished up their last artist study of artists who use plants in their work and began planting! We are excited to watch our plants grow while we keepContinue reading “Week 16”

Week 16

Hello everyone! 

My name is Abby Solano and I am so excited to be your new teacher. This year is going to be full of learning and fun. We will work on becoming better readers, writers, scientists, and mathematicians by working together, studying, and engaging in hands-on projects! To tell you a little more about me, I am the daughter of Costa Rican immigrants and studied photography and latin american studies followed by childhood education and bilingual education. I have taught dual language for six years and am excited to start year seven here. I am new to this school and Brooklyn and look forward to learning with and from you all! 

Start to school information

  1. My last name is Solano but students can call miss Abby so they are not confused with miss S. Please let me know if your child prefers to be called something other than what is on the roll
  2. Drop off and pick up

8:10- School opens for students having breakfast only. All students must enter through school yard if having breakfast

8:25- all students arrive. Look for me by main entrance next to microscope icon

3 First day activities

The first thing we will do is share something about our summer. Might be a good idea to start talking about what students might want to share since I know it can be intimidating to come up with a share sometimes.

Later in the week we will talk about our names. It would be helpful to talk with your child about how they got their name and/or why they like it.

Our class schedule

Students will have art or P.e. every morning and lunch at 11:40-12:55

we will be learning in English and Spanish. Students will alternate between the languages for core subjects every other day and do phonics and writing in both languages every day.


Please keep toys at home for after school. We have lots of things to keep us busy and games for when we need a break 🙂

Covid protocol

Masks are required and must be worn at all times. Please complete health screening before arriving at school. Students’ temperature will be taken before entering the building.

We will wash hands frequently and students are welcome to bring small hand sanitizer to keep in their backpack or lunchbox. There will be hand sanitizer in the classroom for all students to use throughout the day.


Feel free to contact me via classdojo or email and look out for a link to Google classroom that we will use for days we have to be remote coming soon!

¡Hola, todos!

Mi nombre es Abby Solano y estoy muy emocionada de ser su nueva maestra. Este año estará lleno de aprendizaje y diversión. ¡Trabajaremos para convertirnos en mejores lectores, escritores, científicos y matemáticos trabajando juntos, estudiando y participando en proyectos prácticos! Para contarles un poco más de mí, soy hija de inmigrantes costarricenses y estudié fotografía y estudios latinoamericanos y después educación infantil y educación bilingüe. He enseñado lenguaje dual durante seis años y estoy emocionada de comenzar el séptimo año aquí. ¡Soy nueva en esta escuela y en Brooklyn y espero aprender con y de todos ustedes!

Comenzar a la información de la escuela

1.Mi apellido es Solano, pero los estudiantes pueden llamar a la señorita Abby para que no se confundan con la señorita S. Por favor, avíseme si su hijo prefiere que lo llamen de otra manera que no sea lo que está en la lista.

Entrada y Salida

8:10- La escuela abre solo para estudiantes que desayunan. Todos los estudiantes deben entrar por el patio de la escuela si están desayunando.

8:25- llegan todos los estudiantes. Búscame en la entrada principal junto al icono del microscopio

3 Actividades del primer día

Lo primero que haremos es compartir algo sobre nuestro verano. Podría ser una buena idea comenzar a hablar sobre lo que los estudiantes podrían querer compartir, ya que sé que a veces puede ser intimidante pensar en compartir.

Más adelante en la semana hablaremos de nuestros nombres. Sería útil hablar con su hijo sobre cómo obtuvo su nombre y / o por qué le gusta.

Nuestro horario de clases:

Los estudiantes tendrán arte o P.e. cada mañana y almuerzo a las 11: 40-12: 55

Aprenderemos en inglés y español. los estudiantes van a alternar entre día de español y día de inglés pero todo los dia haremos destrezas de lectura y escritura en ambos idiomas.

Juguetes: Guarde los juguetes en casa para después de la escuela. Tenemos muchas cosas para mantenernos ocupados y juegos para cuando necesitamos un descanso 🙂

protocolo Covid:

Se requieren máscaras y se deben usar en todo momento. Por favor complete el examen de salud antes de llegar a la escuela. Se tomará la temperatura de los estudiantes antes de ingresar al edificio. Nos lavaremos las manos con frecuencia y los estudiantes pueden traer un desinfectante de manos pequeño para guardar en su mochila o lonchera. Habrá desinfectante de manos en el salón de clases para que todos los estudiantes lo usen durante el día.
