Welcome to 1st Grade

  • Homework

    Every student has nightly reading homework.  Students are given a Read Every Day R.E.D. folder with a book on their level.  Please listen and help your child read this book daily and when they are ready for a more challenging book log it in the pages provided so I can give them a new book.  Reading every day is one way to improve a student's reading, vocabulary, and confidence.  Thank you for reading with your student!

  • Spelling tests are given first thing in the morning, on the last day of the week.  Words are sent home on paper at least once either the Friday before or that Monday and can usually be found on Class Dojo.  Please practice these with your children at home.

    This week's words, test on Friday, November 22th:
