I am very excited to begin this new school year. I am so happy to have your child in my class. I am looking forward to meeting you and your child at Meet the Teacher on Thursday August 20th from 4:00 to 5:00. See you then!
We will get new spelling words this week. You will see these words written in your child’s planner. We will do activities with these words and then have a spelling test on Friday. Our spelling tests include the new words we get and some of the words from the previous weeks.
We will not go to the Library this week. Please help your child keep up with their book they checked out last week so they can check out another next week.
We will have parent orientation on Tuesday September 19th from 5:30 to 6:30. It will start in the cafeteria and then go to our classrooms. I will be giving you lots of information about what will go on in first grade this year. I hope to see you there.
I sent a book home with your child this week. IT is very important that you read with your child every night and sign their reading log. When they come back to school I will read their book with them and they will receive a sticker if they read the night before. I know sometimes things happen that they may not read at night but please try and read with them as much as you can. It is such a key to their success!
In Reading we will read back to school books and Fall books. We will get five new spelling words and have our spelling test on Thursday this week. We will also begin studying long vowels. In Writing we will will continue to write about our student of the day and also writing workshop. In Math we will continue problem solving. In Science we will begin a unit on the five senses.
