1H September

Wow! I can’t believe we are in September and rockin’ and rollin’ in 1st grade!!! I am so excited that we are in the swing of things and that the kiddos are doing fabulous! Please check here every first of the month for classroom news, pictures, school dates and curriculum for the month.

A big thank you for your classroom donations!

I will send out an email when we get low on items. 

Classroom Notes:

 

Agendas-Parents, you have done an amazing job signing and logging in reading minutes, THANK YOU! Every month we will have a new goal for reading minutes, please check reading log page for that information.

AR- We started taking AR test in our classroom this week and the kids really love it! Some of them are familiar with the program from Kindergarten.

 Just a couple of reminders: Students must pass their test with 80% or higher and they cannot take a test twice. Now that we are in September we will be having monthly AR goals. For this month the goal is to take and pass 3 AR Tests! I will be sending out weekly printouts of your child’s progress. Students are allowed to take 1 test a day and must read the book 3 times before taking their test. Since we are beginning readers I ask that 1 of those times be with an adult.

XtraMath- I sent home a paper about this awesome math program we have access to called XtraMath. This is a great program used to build math fluency. We will be logging in during our math time but I -asked that your child logs in at least once a week for 15-25 minutes to build stamina. I will get a report on my end with their progress.

Homework-Please make sure your child is completing their homework nightly and returning it the next morning. Students who fail to turn in their homework will be making it up at lunch bunch. After 5 clip pulls your child is not eligible for conduct honor roll. Homework for the night can be found written down in their agenda for the corresponding subject.
