The First Grade Class will be expected to do their best in class. I expect them to be kind to each other and to help one another. First Graders like to talk and I will give them plenty of time to interact at their family style seating. However when they are learning new things I expect them to be quiet and listen.
I expect parents to check their child’s backpack and planner every day. I expect parents to sign their child’s planner, Poetry Notebook and Thursday Folder when they come home. I expect parents to check their child’s homework when they are finished. And finally I expect parents to read with their child at least once a week and fill out and sign the reading log that is due every Friday.
A letter at the beginning of the year explains what homework will be given out and the usual routine of homework in our class.
LABEL EVERYTHING: Please write your child’s name on EVERYTHING.
Your child’s items look just like everyone else’s. Things get lost, misplaced or accidentally picked up by someone else, especially clothing: Gym clothes, sweaters, jackets, etc.
