Notes From the Teacher:

We are so close to the end of our journey together in 1st grade! I have loved watching your child grow into better readers, mathematicians, writers, and scientists. As our journey comes to an end, we will be reviewing all of the things we have learned in first grade. At home please make sure your child is reading every night, we are working on our fluency and comprehension, the more we practice the better we become. Also please make sure that your child is completing their homework every week. Your child should complete four spelling activities, one each night, and read four stories, again one each night. If your child ever needs additional books to read at home on their level please let me know, I will happily send home more books for them. If you ever have any questions, please contact me through an email, note, phone call, or text!
