Dear 1st Grade Parents,
Welcome to 1st Grade! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and is ready to come back to school! Here are some things you might want to know about your child's first grade classroom.
Your child will be given a take home folder that will need to checked and returned to school every day. This is what I will use to communicate with you. Any important papers, homework, etc. will go home in this folder. There is a calendar in the folder that will have a smiley face to record your child's behavior for the day. Blue = Excellent, Green = Good, Yellow = 5 minutes off recess, Red = 10 minutes off recess. This will help let you know how your child is doing in class.
Each Friday, I will send home a Parent Newsletter to let you know what your child will be working on the next week. Please practice reading the sight words and stories with your child.
Your child will be provided with everything that they need for school in our classroom, but if you wish to purchase your own school supplies, I have provided a list below:
Suggested School Supply List
dry erase markers
colored pencils, crayons, or markers
Lysol or Clorox wipes
sandwich and gallon sized baggies
If you have any questions, please let me know! I look forward to working with you and your child and having a great school year!
