I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach your child! I feel fortunate to witness and foster their growth academically, socially and emotionally. Having a strong parent-teacher relationship is crucial to a successful school year. Together we can make your child's first-grade experience amazing! Always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to a memorable year!
Homework is to be completed every night and returned the following day. Please let me know if your child ever has difficulty with the homework. Homework is meant to reinforce skills taught in school. It is not meant to frustrate.

Math Homework: Math homework will have two sides ~ "Practice" and "Enrichment". Always complete the Practice side. The Enrichment side is optional.
The SuperKids reading program is a fun and exciting approach that teaches your child to read and write. First-graders learn more complex letter-sound relationships. They apply these new skills to longer decodable stories and informational texts and in their writing. Reading comprehension and fluency are emphasized. All skills are carefully integrated and taught in multiple modes—visual, auditory, and kinesthetic—to reinforce language learning.
YOU are an important part of our reading curriculum. Have your child read to you 10-15 minutes each night. Don't forget to fill out the reading log and return to school when it is complete. Enjoy spending time reading with your little one. :-)
EnVision Math in grade 1 focuses on critical areas such as: (1) developing understanding of and strategies for addition and subtraction; (2) developing understanding of whole number relationships and place value, including grouping in tens and ones; (3) developing understanding of linear measurement and measuring lengths as iterating length units; and (4) reasoning about attributes of, and composing and decomposing geometric shapes.
Math facts are very important to know and are an important part of first-grade. Addition and subtraction flashcards are a great strategy for practicing.

SNACK AND LUNCH
We will have a snack each morning so please pack a small, healthy snack for your child. Please keep in mind that we do have students in our class with food allergies. It is important that I know if your child has any peanut or tree nut products. Please write a quick note each time you send in any nut products so that I can keep our allergy students safe.
