Welcome to First Grade! 

We are so excited for a great year in First Grade! We have 4 first grade teachers this year and will be working closely together. 

School SUPPLIES/útiles Escolares

In lieu of providing school supplies for your child, the first grade teachers are requesting that each family provide a gift card to Target in the amount of $25 (or any amount that is comfortable). We will use these donations to replenish supplies as needed throughout the year. Your contributions are much appreciated.

En vez de que ustedes provean útiles escolares para su hijo/a, las maestras del primer grado están pidiendo que cada familia provea una tarjeta de regalo para Target por la cantidad de $25 ( o cualquier cantidad con la que ustedes se sientan cómodos). Nosotras usaremos estas donaciones para reponer los materiales escolares durante el año escolar. Sus contribuciones son muy apreciadas. 

Curriculum

In first grade we hope to establish strong, life long learning habits in reading, writing and math.  We use a variety of strategies to teach the whole child.   

Reading/Writing Workshop:

  • Benchmark Advance 
  • Fountas & Pinnell (assessment program)

Math Workshop:

  • Envision
  • Counting Collections

Character Education:

Homework

Please help your child become a stronger reader and develop a love for reading! First graders are expected to read for at least 20 minutes, five nights a week.

Your child will have nightly math homework. Please help your child succeed in developing responsible homework habits. Homework should be completed and brought back to school the next morning in the Take Home Folder.
