Ms. Zawar's 1st Grade Class

A warm welcome to parents and guardians,

A little bit about me!

Hello everyone! My name is Sharmeen Zawar and I am originally form Pakistan, but grew up in Houston all my life. I am proud to be a Texan! I come from a big family full of children of all ages and love socializing. I enjoy spending my time with children and work very well with them.
In my free time I as well as photography and scrap-booking. I absolutely love working on hands-on projects and being crafty. I love discovering new things and learning how to create them.
I love working with children at this grade level because of their bright and creative minds. They like to questions, which is a key component for their best learning experience. I love talking to and explaining to children what they want to know. This is a great way for me to know the children and for them to get to know me.

Radical Reading!

I would highly encourage children to read books of any kind. All children are different and I can personally understand if your child may not like to read. The best way to get children to take the first step is to find a topic that they children can relate to or enjoy. Reading will help children not only increase their knowledge in vocabulary, but also in their writing. Children use reading and writing everyday and reading books is a great step to improving their skills.

The children will have the opportunity to be able to check out books at the school library every week. I would recommend parents make sure that their children read every night for at least for 10-15 minutes. This will create a great routine for children to work with as they will begin to enjoy books. Ask children questions about what they read and what the story is about as they progress. This is a great way to reflect on what your child has read so far.
