1B Weekly News
It is truly a gift for me to be your child's teacher. We are already working hard and learning a lot about each other. Expectations are growing each day of what we can accomplish! Three days down and 177 to go!
The papers on the left side have been checked. I hope that you will take the opportunity to go over the papers with your child. Remember those papers can get "LEFT" at home. To let me know that you have seen the papers and this folder, I would like for you to sign the sheet on the right side of the folder, return it to the folder and return the folder "RIGHT" back to school. Don't forget to put the Behavior Log and the reading book, back in the right side, too.
Thank you for all of you who are initialing the Behavior Log, so I can see that we are both aware of behavior and expectations.
Memory work is an important part of First grade. Each child will be called to my desk on Wednesday and Friday to say the memory verse that is listed. I usually give the first coupld words to get the children started. Practice often.
Most of the children are doing a great job at lunch time of eating in quick order-we have 20 minutes total to get food, sit down and eat. Some of the children are spending more time talking than eating. If you are noticing that your child is really hungry, please take the opportunity to talk with him/her about eating first and talking later.
Several of the children are missing earbuds/headphones. We will need those by Monday.
