Welcome to First Grade!

Welcome back to school! First grade is a wonderful year where you see huge growth in your student! By the end of the year they will be independent readers, writers, and mathematicians. They will begin reading easy "chapter" books, and writing full stories. It is going to be a great year and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at any time.

Important Notes: 

  • Please have your student bring in their back to school supplies on the first day of school.
  • We have PE on days 3 and 4. Please remember to have your child wear sneakers on these days.
  • Please pack a healthy snack for your student every day. They can keep a water bottle at school, please label it with their name or initials.


10 minutes of reading Monday-Thursday. RAH books and bags are due back every Friday. Please note that you can read books other than the one sent home in the RAH bag. The book sent home each week is just so you have a book at your child's reading level incase you do not have one at home.

Spelling tests are every Friday! Please make sure to practice spelling words at home with your child nightly.

Occasionally, math homework or uncompleted work will be sent home for extra practice, or for weekend work. Games we have done in class may also be sent home for extra practice.

Please be sure your reader returns their Library book every Monday morning or else they cannot take out a new one.

***NOTE*** There is NO homework (RAH, Spelling) during 3-day weeks
