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!

Fluency Folder: Your child will keep a red "Fluency Folder" in their backpack. It will travel to and from school daily. The folder will contain a poetry notebook and short readings from the Superkids program. Fluency is gained when familiar text is reread. Please read from the folder often.
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 have students with food allergies in our class. 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.
Recess and lunch are held each day from 11:51-12:41.
