 Fantastic First Graders

We are doing big things in first grade. It is a transition from Kindergarten to First Grade in working to become more independent. Students are asked to be more responsible for their actions and their belongings. Folders are checked by the students each morning. We are working hard to be independent during seat work and stations as well. It is important to get practice in reading, word work, and writing every day. Homework is sent home at the beginning of the week and returned on each Friday. 

Please let me know if you have any concerns. My door is always open.

Your students are working so hard this year and I am SO very proud of them! Be sure to continue the following to help prepare them for the next year:

  • Read to them, everyday
  • Let them read to you, everyday
  • Practice sight words
  • Practice spelling out those sight words
  • Practice addition facts to 10 mentally
  • Practice double digit addition and subtraction, without regrouping on paper. 
  • HAVE FUN!!! 

Be sure to read with your student every night!
