I am excited to start this school year with your little first grader! This is my thirteenth year working with first graders. This year is filled with so much growth! You will be amazed at all of the thinking your child will do this year!
On Tuesday, August 15th there is a time for us to meet! "Meet the Teacher" is from 3-5 pm. I will be available from 3-4 pm in our classroom, Room 120. This is a perfect time to help your child find his/her way to our classroom. This time is also great for me to briefly meet your kiddo and ease some jitters he/she might have about their first day of first grade.
Wednesday, August 16th is the first day of school! :) The school day begins at 9:10 am.
Thursday, August 24th, 5:30-6:30 pm is first grade Curriculum Night. During this hour, you will have the opportunity to learn about and participate with your child in some classroom routines. You will experience a thinking routine, a design challenge, a rich math problem and I will also have a display of reading materials that first graders enjoy at this time of year as well as some favorite books that we will have read together in the first few days of school! I am super excited to have a Curriculum Night that will give you, the parent, a glimpse into the type of thinking your first grader will be a part of this school year! :)
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year together!
