Mrs. Daniels Class
IMPORTANT! READ BELOW
Please keep that in mind as grades may change once students are 100% responsible for reading their own assignments. Encourage your children to love reading, so that even when it is hard to do things on their own, they may be able to try their best when it comes to January!
I am available between 3:30 and 5:30 after school hours for SCHEDULED phone conferences/in person conferences, and may occasionally ask if those times do not work for you to schedule a time during the school day when I will be without the students. I love to speak with you about your child and their progress!
These conferences will need to be scheduled with me through dojo or my google voice number. I will not honor ANY time that someone may show up unscheduled/ without speaking with me first.
When do we have P.E?
Make sure that if your child arrives at 7:50 or after that they go straight to the PE room as we will not be in our classroom.
*At home practice that I am able to see and stamp in their LARGE books will result in 10 points being added to your child's spelling test. (I do NOT collect their small books so that they do not lose them.) Practicing at home is a great way to get better and share the importance, and even sometimes help save a grade when we had a hard test!*

Management and Procedures
Teamwork and fostering the growth of your students ability to be leaders is key!
What you do AT HOME
DAILY behavior communication will be on the chart in the back of their blue folders. Please ensure that these blue folders stay in their bookbag and that when possible you check the chart. If there are any emergencies of any kind, I will make sure to contact you.
Graded papers will go home in white folders once every two weeks, on WEDNESDAYS. Please sign their folders to confirm that you have seen them.
Thank you for understanding!
They will learn all kinds of skills in first grade, in both math and reading. These are skills they work hard to learn! Your students will have the opportunity to earn scout badges this year! (and maybe even for something more fun , like tying their shoes, keeping clean, and being a great leader!) Please make it a big deal at home when your student earns a badge! It's something both you and your student should be proud of!
My hope is that these badges are going to be things that help motivate students to learn, so that they can collect them all, and will get to bring home their sashes at the end of the year with all of their accomplishments from the year on it!
