It's a good idea to get one or two levels below their reading level (just for fun, builds confidence, can work on expression) and a few levels above their level to grow into and challenge them.
Water bottles: Remember, no water bottles with “screw on” caps. We need a secure, pop up or flip up lid. Thank you so much for your help!
We eat snack at about 1:45 each day. You may send a small snack to school with your child. Grapes, apple slices, cheez-its, goldfish, pretzels, plain popcorn, or crackers are a great snack. NO peanut products are allowed for snack.
Please sign the bottom of your child's homework each week. Homework should only be about 20 minutes a night in first grade. Don't stress over it!
