It was so nice meeting each and everyone of you at open house. I was so eager for the first day with the students after seeing them that night. My instinct was right these students are awesome! It has been lots of fun getting to know them during our first few days. We have spent time establishing classrooom rules and procedures. Ask your children about interrupting chicken. It is great to see so many of you have joined classrooom Dojo. This not only helps track behavior,but it also serves as a quick and easy communication method.
As the year progresses students will have some homework some evenings. Believe it or not I have had students ask when they would get homework😀 Homework is not meant to be a stressful event for child or parents. The skills that will be going home will be to reinforce what we are working on in class. Our homework policy states no more than 10 to 30 minutes a night for grade one. If there are ever any issues with homework please be in touch. I know evenings are busy and family time is precious.
A big thank you for the supplies that were donated to our classroom. Your generosity was greatly appreciated.
Here is to a fantastic first grade year!
