Welcome to Mrs. Wendolek's Class page!


    This year we will be using the Class DOJO for home/school communication. More information will be sent home the first week of school.

    Please join our class on Class DOJO to see what we are doing in class.

    classdojo.com or download the ClassDojo app.


    It's a NEW year! 

    During the first week, I will supply the students with crayons,

    pencils, scissors, gluesticks and a homework folder. 

    If you could supply a PENCIL BOX, that would be awesome!

    ***PLEASE do not send in a personal pencil sharpener.  They tend to make a mess.  I sharpen pencils daily and extra pencils are always available to students.


    Other important notes:

    • If your child is out sick for more than two days, please email me and I will leave work with the receptionist.
    •  If your child buys lunch several times a week, PLEASE have them memorize their ID NUMBER.   
    •  Homework: Your child will begin bringing home their Sight Word Journal nightly at the end of October.  They will work on the same six words nightly.  Their practice will be the reading race.  Students read the words and try to get faster each night.
    •  Supplies:  Allergy and cold season is in full swing.  I will gladly accept any boxes of tissues! I can also use disinfectant wipes and paper towels.  


    Our First Grade curriculum includes:

    Reader's Workshop:  Students will explore the world of reading on their level.

    Phonics:  Short and long vowels will be learned in the beginning of the year.  

    Writer's Workshop:  Every child has a story and Writer's Workshop is the perfect opportunity to share their story.  We are starting to write Small Moments stories.  

    Math:  In Math, students will be introduced to addition and subtraction to start the year.

    Social Studies:  Students will learn about the community and the world.

    Health:  Students discuss general health, ways to keep healthy, things to avoid to keep them safe and making good choices.
