Mrs. Overly's First Grade

Weekly Reminders

Happy Friday!!

This week has been FULL of learning more routines and expectations of what it's like to be a 1st grader. The class has been working on a few of our Daily 5 activities that they will do during our literacy small group time that will begin soon. We have been working on Read to Self and Word Work. They are getting better everyday at working quietly and independently. The quiet part is the tough part!! I am sure your child is tired of me saying, "Class, Class", "Hocus, Pocus", or "Red Robin"! Go ahead - try saying it to your child and wait for their response!! :) It is our way of communicating that it is time to focus and listen.


Your child brought their tablet home yesterday. Please help your child charge his/her tablet each night and bring it back each day. We will use the tablets daily in First Grade. Thank you for your help!


In your child's Take Home Folder, you will find this month's Scholastic Book Orders. Please see the attached note below for information on online ordering. Orders will be due on Friday, September 11.


Please take a look at the information attached below regarding our Read at Home program. You will also find our class directory below. :)
