At arrival, students will line up in the first grade line east of the building in the kindergarten fenced playground or the gym if they eat breakfast at school. At the bell, a teacher will walk the first grade line to their classrooms. At dismissal, I will escort students who go to kid’s club to the cafeteria to check in bus or a day care students to their bus or van. I will walk the rest of the class to the kindergarten fenced area on the east side of the building to wait for their ride or siblings.
Everyday a folder will come home showing their behavior. Green-good choices. Yellow-warnings. Orange-time outs and a note home. Red-removal from the room and note or call home. Students with all green marks will earn weekly treats and a monthly citizenship party.
Math: We will focus on numbers, counting to 100, addition/subtraction facts, telling time to the hour and half hour, identifying and counting money, measurement, shapes, sorting, graphing, and patterns. Second quarter we will begin time tests, so you may want to work on addition/subtraction facts at home by using flashcards or reviewing work completed at school.
We will be learning various themes throughout the year through hands on projects, leveled readers, and magazines. Such as Living/Non-Living Animals, Solids-Liquids-Gases, Rocks-Soil-Sand, Earth, Sun, Moon, Maps, Communities, Work, United States, Customs, Holidays, Cultures, Current Events…
A folder will come home with work, notes, and a daily behavior calendar each day. This is a good time to look over your child’s papers with them and discuss what they have learned. They will return the folder each day. If you need to return notes or send lunch money or messages, please send them in the folder.
Also look for homework that may include spelling lists, flashcards of sounds or words, and books to read and return.
