Homework: The 1st-grade homework page goes home on Monday and is due on Friday. If your child does not return their homework on Friday, they will complete it in class in lieu of going to centers with a ten point deduction for late work.
Accelerated reader testing with your child's library books on Fridays has begun. They should read (or listen to you read) the books as they follow along at least 4 times throughout the week to ensure success on their comprehension test on Fridays. These books are short and take about 10 minutes to read or listen to, a very worthwhile investment made toward your child’s success as a reader!
Our classroom procedure regarding absences: Any graded work your child misses due to an absence will be placed in their mailbox and ready to take home as homework when they are able to return to school.
Our homework is due on Friday. If your student is absent on Thursday, they may return their completed work the following week.
Our learning occurs through thoughtful and deliberate instruction, not just missed papers. Please have your student attend class unless fever or illness warrants absence!
First grade is the year we become fluent readers and every day builds on to the last. Attendance is the key to success!
