Hello students and families! Please look through this website carefully as it is full of important information. We will update the website weekly to keep you informed  about what is going on in our classroom. We look forward to working with you and making your child’s first grade experience a positive, busy and memorable one!

This Week's Homework:

  • Utilizing the website Teach Your Monster to Read will reinforce what we are working on in class.
Sight Words:
  • Please practice your child's sight words as they come home in their sight word bag.
  • Reading homework due Monday, September 24th.
  • Read for 20 minutes a day. 
  • Have your child continue to practice their math facts! This will help build their math fact fluency, which they are assessed on through gumball math.
  • Utilizing online programs such as Xtra Math and Prodigy will help build math fact fluency, as well as reinforce concepts and skills that are taught in class. 
Language Arts:
  • We are learning about complete sentences. You can help reinforce this at home by writing an incomplete sentence and having your child tell you what is wrong, or what you should fix. For example, you could write "i like school" and ask your child to tell you what two things are wrong. You could also have your child practice writing a few sentences and encourage/remind them of everything they need to have a complete sentence.
Things to Remember/Important Dates:
