Dear Parents,

I am so happy to be your child's First grade teacher. I am looking forward to this year of adventure.

It will be a year full of learning and growth. I encourage open and honest discussions between home and school. This will best benefit your child. We will work to become proficient readers, marvelous mathematicians, and independent thinkers. I will be communicating with you throughout the year by letters, notes, phone calls, and conferences.

We will have a fantastic year!

Test this Thursday

Good afternoon Parents
 
This weeks homework is a math review for our test on Thursday. The packet includes the review and a money page we completed for a daily grade. Please look over these skills before our test.
 
Some students are very upset when they do not get the reward on Friday for homework completion. The math pages AND the reading log need to be completed each day and initialed in order to have homework completed. Thanks for keeping up the reading at home!
 
Enjoy the sunshine!

Homework and reading levels

Good afternoon Parents!
Everyone has a home reader and a math packet for homework this week. There is a math review packet in the Wednesday folder to help review for our test on Friday. Some students are having difficulty with these skills. See packet for more information.
 
Homework is due on Fridays and the reading log needs to be filled out and initialed by parent. This home reader is selected specifically for your child and provides excellent practice so your child can reach their goal reading level.
 
Please continue to support your child by continuing homework routines.
Have a great evening!!

Homework and reading

Parents,
 
I know we are all looking forward to the holidays! As your child may have told you we have no homework this week!! Over the 2 1/2 week break we will have reading homework. We have made this worthwhile homework as fun and easy as possible. Look for more information in your child's Wednesday's folder.
 
Thanks to all who have sent in party items. Our party is this Friday so please send in items soon(except for perishables).
 
Enjoy the Christmas holidays!

Next two weeks

 
 
 
 
 
 

Parents,

Over the next 2 weeks we will be having rotations in both Language Arts time and Social Studies. This is intended to be an enjoyable enrichment experience for our Learners before the holiday break. We wanted to share this information about your child possibly visiting other First grade classrooms during the next few weeks.
 
There are many events happening at school. Please take a look at the calendar.
 
A note about our Christmas party will be in the Wednesday folder. Please see what items you are asked to send in to help make our party a joyful time.
 
Enjoy the weekend!

Important homework info. and date changes

Parents,
 
Let me start off by expressing my gratitude for all you do at home to help your child succeed academically The structure of schools has evolved so much so that parent insolvent is critical to the academic success of students. I will repeat the sentiment on blue homework sheet in red every day folder that the discussions you have during homework time are the most valuable outcome of First grade homework. Home-readers are a crucial part of homework time. These books/stories are purposely intended to help your child improve their reading skills. The skill sheet is vital to reading growth. Please take the time and care to help your child every night for homework.
 
The math review sheet is a review for our Math test on Thursday. The skills covered mirror the skills on the test.
 
Sing Along date is changed to THURSDAY Dec. 15th starting at 2:30. It is simply a fun assembly and we do not have a part or a performance as First grade students.
 
 
Thank you again very much for your support this year.
Ruby Crowe
 
                                                   

Update

Parents,
 
2nd 9 weeks Sight work check is on Friday Nov.11th.  A set of flashcards were sent in the Wed. folder last week.
 
Word family lists are on my website in case your copy is misplaced. Next weeks words are also listed in case your family would like to spend some weekend time getting a jump on the coming weeks words.
 
Our First Grade monthly newsletter is updated monthly. This contains helpful parent information. You can find it on the RES website.
 
This year seems to be flying by!
Thank you.
