We have some routines that will be followed each day we come into the classroom. I will let you know via email if anything changes throughout the year.
Take-Home Folders and Planners
Folders and planners come to school each morning and go home each evening. Any notes, forms, etc. can be placed in the folder and I will remove them each morning.
The planner contains nightly assignments. These will be copied down when your child comes into school. There will always be a reading log assignment Monday through Thursday. They just need to read for 15-20 minutes. Afterwards, they will write the number of minutes that they read and the parent initials it. They can read independently, read to a family member, and, in addition, someone can read to them. It's flexible as long as they are enjoying literacy each night. The second assignment will typically be a quick reinforcement of the math skills we learned that day.
We will have snack each day in General Studies. Please pack something nutritious to eat, as well as a thermos/bottle of water.
We will have PE three times a week - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Please make sure they are wearing sneakers on these days. Please pack sneakers on Fridays if they are wearing dress shoes.
Communication is really important to me. If you have ANY questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be checking my email and phone messages throughout the day when I am not teaching your children. I will get back to you as soon as possible. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email or call the school and leave a message.
