Class Subjects The subjects we cover during first grade are: Reading and Language Arts Math Writing Science Social studies Music and Art
Classroom Community Our classroom is a community. In our community, we have rules to help us get along with each other. In our class we: Respect others. Keep your hands and feet to ourselves. Stay quiet while someone else is talking. Always say I CAN!
Homework I will assign about 15 minutes of homework every night. This includes independent reading. Your homework baggie is due the following morning. Mrs. Horne’s reading lab is open each morning at 7:30 to work on our Lexia Reading Program.
Tardiness School starts at 7:55 A.M. The tardy bell rings at 8:05. If you aren’t in the classroom by the time the second bell rings, please check in at the school office before coming to class. If you are tardy three times, the school will contact your parents about lunch detention the next day.
