In the Classroom
Each month your child will bring home a Scholastic Book Club order. Our online code is GLLLB. This is a great place to buy books for your home library! Every time you order, our class earns books to read. Scholastic books are a great price and a great way to collect books on your child's level. In first grade we strive to end the school year at a level J. Most students are reading a level c, d, or e at this time of the year. By reading at least 20 minutes independently at school and 15-20 minutes at home each day, your child will grow leaps and bounds this year!
