Behavior Classroom expectations will be clearly stated, taught and reinforced. Focus on positive (Spot On! Behavior) Natural consequences 5 Classroom Rules (Whole Brain Teaching) The expectation is for all students to follow the rules and do their BEST!
Homework Please send the Homework Folder to school each day! Kindergarten Homework will be posted on the class website under the “kindergarten homework” page monthly. Parents are responsible for printing out the homework. The homework is broken up into weeks 1-4, students are to complete one page each night and turn the completed WEEK in every Friday (be sure they write their name on every page.) In addition, students should be reading their “book bag” book (when we begin Daily 5) and parents should be reading a story or two to their child NIGHTLY. First Grade Homework will be posted every Friday on the class website under the “first grade homework” page. A math worksheet will be sent home daily (Monday-Thursday) in your child’s Homework Folder. This assignment is to be completed and returned the following day. First graders are expected to complete a weekly writing prompt that is due on or before Thursday every week. The prompts will be posted along with the homework on Friday. In addition, students should be reading their “book bag” book (when we begin Daily 5) and parents should be reading a story or two to their child NIGHTLY.
Get Involved! Please fill out and return the yellow Volunteer Form. We will need two parents every day for Daily 5 beginning the week of September 15. My parent training is Thursday, September 11 th at 3:15. I will need a room parent, prep work at home, a weekly “copy queen or king,” an Art Docent, Science Docent assistants, a Project Lead the Way assistant, and help with field trips and class parties. I would also really appreciate having a volunteer to help daily with math. Ways to get involved with our school: Join PTC! Become a Watch Dog! Help with Special Events!
