Planners & Folders & Next week

The planner and folder will be going home every day. This is a great way to keep parents updated on my classroom, notes, and anything important coming up in addition to our school and classroom blog. This is also the primary way of keeping up with your student’s behavior. I will begin tracking behavior next week! Green is where we start in 1st grade. Green means they did what was asked and made great choices. Yellow means they made a bad decision.  Red means they made a choice that hurt someone, used profanity, or lied to the teacher/adult, or was a danger to students.

Please look at, read, and initial the planner every single night. Your child knows this as well and can help remind you.

Please check folder for any notes, completed work coming home, graded work, homework, or activities. The folder should be emptied except for any returning notes, homework, or permission slips, etc.

It’s been another amazing day! I love your kids so much! They are all so different and great in their own ways and I love it! I can’t wait to get to know them better!

There is a “Get to Know Your Student” paper coming home to fill out! This way, I can learn from their first teacher, YOU, and what kind of kiddo they are! This will help me to see them in your eyes!

Remember the genius homework is due Monday. This will be presented to show off our genius and to see if any of our friends have similar interests.

In first grade, we only do snacks for the first 2 weeks of school.  We try to keep them from getting too hungry those first couple of weeks so we squeeze in snacks at 2:00 for their little bellies. If you would like to send a bulk snack, you are more than welcome!! We have 19 friends in our class this year!

First Grade is so jam-packed so it is important that our sweeties get here by 7:45, if at all possible.  Our day starts in full swing at 8:00 and we don’t stop until 2:45!  I understand there will be times that mornings get crazy, believe you me, but please try!

We will have a Parent Orientation after the year gets rolling to explain how our room works, reading levels, grade level expectations, writing, etc… please try your best to come to that.  It will make a huge difference in how you view your kiddos education and our classroom. I will let you know the date and time when our principal informs us!

Thank you for all you do! You are all great! I have a room full of sweet, polite, curious, and happy kids and I am so excited!

Enjoy your weekend! Get some rest! Next week is a full week!
