On Mondays, your child will bring home a list of spelling words to study. We will have a practice test on Thursdays and the test on Fridays. If your child makes a 100 on the practice test, it won't be necessary to take the test again on Friday.
I will be sending math homework every Tuesday and Thursday unless we have an assessment that day. Your support will be an important factor in helping your child master these skills and concepts.
Each day your child will bring home his or her planner. We write our spelling words in them every Monday. I will write notes in them about behavior as well.
We love to celebrate birthdays! Please let me know in advance if you plan on bringing in a treat for your child to share with the class. The ideal time for the party would be at the end of the day (2:50-3:05).
Please feel free to participate in your child’s first grade year as much as you are able. Helping hands are always needed. Whether it is reading a story to the class, helping with field trips, class parties, or any other participation will enrich our classroom experiences.
I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
