Reading - Mondays & Tuesdays, students will bring a decodable reader home to read. Please have your child read these 3 times; then sign and return. Each week, your child will be checking out a library book. Please read with your child; it helps them to develop fluency and vocabulary.
Math - Homelinks will be sent home each day Monday-Thursday. Also, please help your child practice addition & subtraction facts.
Show & Tell Each week, we will select a student from our class to participate in show & tell. This child will take home our special show & tell sack. Inside the sack, your child is allowed to bring a couple of show & tell items to school to show to his/her classmates. We will send the share sack home on Tuesday. Please return it with your child's show & tell items by Thursday. We will send the items home on Thursday after you child shares. Once the items have been returned, please return the special bag so the next child will have a turn. (A note will come home with the sack explaining in more detail.)
Class Journal Each Friday, we will select a family to participate in our class journal.. Along will the class journal will come a special friend (plush toy). As this friend visits your family, please share a short journal entry about what he did while he visited over the weekend. You may also include a photo of him visiting your family or draw a picture of his adventures at your house. We will share the class journal & photo in class on Mondays. This year our special friend is a giraffe named "Gerald." Birthday Celebrations There are two first grade classrooms. You may choose to send treats for one or both classes to celebrate your child's birthday. If your child has a summer birthday and you would like to celebrate it during the school year, please send a note so we can schedule a day to enjoy the birthday treats. Please do not sent birthday invitations to school for your child's party unless EVERYONE is invited. We want to be considerate of everyone's feelings.
