Slide 2 Things you can do to help your child this year. Send your child with a backpack daily. Look in your childs backpack daily. Help your child with their homework daily. Read with your child 20 minutes a day. Encourage your child to talk about school. Please make sure your child attends school on time daily. Slide 3 The following items are used regularly throughout the year. We greatly appreciate donations of these items at anytime. **Glue Sticks** Tissues Lysol/Clorox wipes Paper Towels Pencils Dry Erase Markers Fine Tip dry erase markers Sandwich bags (zip top) Snack bags (zip top) Gallon sized bags (zip top) Ream of white paper Notice: The items on this list will be used during the regular school day. They may be brought from home on a voluntary basis. Otherwise, they will be furnished by the school. There are a few things that can distract from learning in the classroom, such as pens, markers, pencil sharpeners, and toys. We appreciate your help in having your child keep these items at home. Classroom Donations Slide 4 Birthdays Birthdays are important in first grade. We will make cards for each child on their birthday. You may send a treat if you wish, but it is not expected. Guidelines from the Health Department mandate that any treat has to be store bought and in the original wrapping. Due to allergies, nonfood items are preferred (pencils, stickers, erasers, book donation to the class). For the children with a birthday in the summer we will celebrate their birthday the week they are Star of the Week. Slide 5 Homework A homework packet will come home every Monday and is to be worked on throughout the week then returned on Friday. Students should be reading each night. A reading log is in their homework folder for recording their minutes. My High Frequency booklet will come home daily and needs to be practiced and returned each day. Shortly after school begins students will bring home Reading for all Learners books. They need to be read these books at home and return them each day. Math games, math websites, flashcards and extra practice sheets are available on our class website.
