First Grade Information

Daily Folders:  Your child's daily folder will contain nongraded activities, notes from class, and a daily chart on behavior.  Please review your child's daily chart and initial the form daily.  

Graded Work:  Every Tuesday, your child will bring home graded papers and information from the front office. Please go through the office papers carefully.  Also, please review the graded work with your child.

Homework:  Homework will be sent home every Friday in your child's daily folder.  The assignment contains activities that will help your child review skills introduced in school. Your child will use pages from a math workbook, handwriting book, and reading comprehension packet to complete the homework.  These will be given to you at our Parent Information Night.  Please keep these packets in a safe spot.  We do not receive any extra copies.  Homework will begin sometime in September.

Daily Readers: Your child will meet in reading groups several times a week.  This will begin in September as well.  Every day, your child will bring home his/her blue reading folder.  It is important for your child to read at least 15 minutes every day.  Using your child's daily reader, please review main character, other characters, setting, problem, solution, beginning, middle, and end.  Your child may bring home the same book two nights in a row.  On these days, please work on word study and fluency - have your child read the book like he/she talks.

Library:  First graders visit the library once a week and are permitted to check out two books.  These books must be returned in order to check out additional books.

Parent Readers:  Parents are invited to come in and read to the class every Friday.  Please have your child select 2-3 books he/she would like you to share with the class.  Visit the Guest Readers page on your child's class website to check available dates. There will be a sign up sheet at our Parent Information Night.  Please only sign up for 1-2 spots so that all of our families have an opportunity to read.

Parent Volunteers:  We are always in need of volunteers!  If you would like to come in and work with groups, work with students one-on-one, conduct research projects, or help with testing, please let your child's teacher know.  We love volunteers in the classroom!  Thank you in advance for your help!
