My Goals To provide a safe, nurturing, fun classroom environment. To give your child the academic and social skills that they will need to progress to the 1st grade. To help your child make new friends. To inspire your child to love learning!
Class Subjects Your child will receive grades for: Reading and Language Arts Math Science Social Studies Penmanship (Handwriting) Work Habits Citizenship
Classroom Community Our classroom is a community. In our community, we have rules to help us get along with each other and be safe. Our class rules are: I can …always follow directions. I can …keep my hands, feet and other objects to myself. I can …use small voices inside and walking feet wherever I go. I can …take care of my things & keep my classroom neat & clean. I can....... use caring words, work together, get along,& respect others.
Homework Your child will have a developmentally appropriate homework activity each week. Homework activities are designed to do TOGETHER with your child. Your homework packet is sent home on Friday morning and is due the next Thursday. A small completion grade is given when homework is returned.
Attendance School starts at 8:50 A.M. If your child is not in the classroom by the time the second bell rings, check in at the school office before coming to class. If your child will be absent please contact me or the front office to let us know. Send in a note or email to me on the day your child returns that briefly explains the absence.
