We will have a snack each morning. Please send one nutritious snack in addition to your child’s lunch. Please do not send a drink for snack time. The children will be allowed to get a drink of water during snack time. Our classroom is a “nut-free” environment. Please check the labels for information regarding nuts. Your child may bring a lunch that contains peanuts.
Your child will bring a folder home each day. Please review the completed work and notes, and return the folder to school the next day.
PFA Reading Log
Please encourage your child to read daily for a minimum of fifteen minutes. Please sign and return your child's reading log at the end of the month.
Please encourage your child to study the math facts daily for a minimum of ten minutes.
Please send a note or call the office if there are any changes in your child’s dismissal.
Birthdays are very special, and we love to celebrate at school! All first grade students will receive a birthday pencil, and a crown. In addition, your child will have their birthday announced over the intercom during the morning announcements.
We will go to the library as a class. The library has an open door policy. Children may check out two new books once they have read and returned their books. Children do not have to wait until our designated day.
Please feel free to send an email to me, write a note, or call if you have any questions or concerns. I will keep you informed about our first grade activities throughout the year.
I would like to thank you in advance for your help and cooperation this year! I look forward to working with you this year.
First Grade Behavior Management Plan
I will teach the students about the expectations that I have for behavior. I will provide positive reinforcement to students to reinforce appropriate behavior. I will communicate with parents my expectations, and my observations. I will send a note explaining why your child was placed on yellow, blue, or red. I truly appreciate your support!
I have a color-coded system that provides visual cueing for the students. There are some situations in which a child would move their color card without being warned verbally.
First Warning – verbal, (child places a popsicle stick in the chart)
Second Warning – verbal, (child places a popsicle stick in the chart)
Third Warning – Child moves their card to yellow, and moves away from the group for five minutes
Fourth Warning – Child moves their card to blue, and moves away from the group for ten minutes
Fifth Warning – Child moves their card to red, and moves away from the group for fifteen minutes
