Happy first day! We made it through the first day of first grade. We did a lot of get-to-know-you activities today and started introducing routines that allow for our classroom to run smoothly. Our next couple of weeks will be creating rules for our classroom as well as continuing to build out and practice our procedures in class. This will lay the foundation to the rest of the year! :). We start off slow but it is all intentionally done for the growth and success that is to come.
All students should have a RED homework folder. The folder should be pronged and I have placed a pocketed divider into the folder. I will distribute the red folders later on this week after I teach the students how to organize their papers. Please bring the red folder back to school every day. There will be 4 sections in the folder. The left pocket of the folder will be where homework goes, the right pocket of the folder will be where "keep home papers" will be. The back side of the colored divider is where students' behavior calendar is (every day, students will color what color the ended their day on: purple [amazing day], green [good day], yellow [warning], or red [behavior requires parent contact]). More on this during curriculum night! On the front side of the color divider is where parents can leave notes from home. All of this will be labeled by me hopefully by the end of this week! :)
The students' homework for this week is to make sure that YOU, the parent, fills out all the appropriate forms in the "back to school" packet-- including the fee waiver forms! If you have already filled the papers out and have turned it in to the office for the year, you can disregard.
