    Guest Reader:
    We are looking forward to having parent volunteers come into our classroom weekly this year to be our guest reader! You may pick the book you would like to bring in, or I am happy to make suggestions. Please be sure the book is appropriate for first graders. Here is the link for the Sign-Up Genius.

    A weekly homework packet will come home on Monday and be due back to school on Friday. Please remove the packet from the green folder when you receive it. You will receive a packet that has a homework checklist on top, and everything you need to complete the homework attached. First grade homework will consist of: 1. Fundations practice and dictation 2. Math practice sheet 3. Reading (decodable folder or books from home). Each day, your child should complete one page of math and one “day” on the Fundations page. It is important to space the homework out throughout the week rather than rushing to complete all in one day. We understand that family schedules are unique and busy, so if you need to double up at times, we certainly understand.

    Decodable Readers

    These readers will vary by student and may look different week by week.  They may be in the form of a folded paper book, paper booklet, or a regular small reader.  We are working to individualize these books to match our learners so book bags will vary. PAPER READERS CAN STAY HOME FOR YOU TO KEEP, mark up, color, etc.  Any book that is a published book, should be returned in the book bag on Friday.

    Please remember to pack a snack for your child each day.
