Welcome to first grade! I am looking forward to getting to an exciting year. This year Mrs. Renk and I are teaming up to teach. Your child will receive math and science/social studies instruction with me in room 202. Students will receive reading and writing instruction with Mrs. Renk in room 205. We are looking forward to planning many exciting lessons to help your child learn and grow in first grade!
Please check your child's backpack every Tuesday for a special green folder. It will have important school/classroom information, forms to fill out, and graded papers. Return it to school with your child the next day.
Weekly Homework and Spelling Words
We will be sending home a page each week that will help you practice first grade skills at home. Students should read each night and talk about what they read. We will also recommend a language arts and math skill that will support your child at school. We will also send home specific spelling words that you can practice at home. Students will be assessed on these words at the end of the month.
Science and Social Study Guides
Each time we begin a new science or social studies unit, we will be sending home a study guide for your child to practice their new content with you at home. Study guides include assessment date and important information for your student to know.
Have you joined our Class Dojo page?
Mrs. Renk and I both use Class Dojo as a classroom management tool. It is a great way for you to see how your child is doing throughout the day, as well as a way to communicate with us as teachers. If you haven't signed up yet and are interested, please let me know, and directions will be sent home with your child.
