  • Welcome to Mrs. Downey's First Grade

    We are going to have a wonderful year in first grade. I look forward to all our great activities for the year! I believe that every child is an active part of my classroom and every child has a gift that they can share with everyone. It is my philosophy that you need to teach the whole child and find out how to help each child academically, socially and emotionally. If you ever have any questions or concerns, Please contact me at colleen.downey@hanovertwpschools.org.

  • Read, Read, Read!!!!

    Reading is so important in First Grade. Please read at home with your child. Setting aside a few minutes a night is all you need to do to encourage reading at home. Please remember to send in your reading incentive list of the books that they have read. They will get a sticker on their incentive chart for every sheet they complete.

  • Homework

    Homework will be given Monday through Thursday nights. We will have usually have 2 assignments per night. A math assignment and a Language Arts assignment will be given. The language arts assignment may be a spelling, grammar, phonics, or poetry assignment. We will also have a fluency folder that goes home on Thursday nights for the weekend. Just a reminder that a speller's choice assignment should be done on Mondays and Thursdays.

  • Snack and Lunch

    Please send in a healthy snack. We have many allergies so please try not to send in snacks with nuts. We have recess first and then lunch. If possible, try to let your child know if they are getting hot lunch.
