Newsletter #1 Welcome!
Welcome to our Classroom Website !
Attendance: It is important that our students need to be in class everyday. With all the exciting and fun new things we learn this year, I would hate for anyone to miss out! Catch up is not a fun for anyone, to do well on our assignments and homework we all need to be at school! Not to mention the stars we get for how many days we've been in class.. (30 stars= treasure chest prize). I want all of my first grade friends to be able to go to the treasure chest, but unexcused absences or three tardies will result in losing their star for the day! Excused absences/ tardies however result in no penalization.
Homework: In first grade I will admit that we will have a bit more homework than you once did in Kindergarten, but I think your students will all be just fine with the homework I give. All of our homework will be based on what we've been learning in class. But with that being said, I highly encourage you as a parent or guardian to assist your student in their homework. Let them show you how much they know, and help them out along the way; but please refrain from giving them the answers. Homework is what lets me access each individual student in that lesson to see who needs more help and who gets it before tests.
