We have provided everything needed for your child to have a successful year in first grade. The only things that are needed at school with your child is a backpack, a water bottle (no glass), and a mask (with extras in their bag). It is encouraged to have crayons, pencils, scissors and glue available at home as well. In addition, please remember to bring a charged chromebook to school everyday. They will go back and forth from home and will be utilized often in the classroom.
Here are some needed items if you would like to donate to the class! Thank you!!!!

-Directions to log into Pearson Envision Math

-enter the code wpl4359
Math homework will be given out everyday (except fridays).
-You will receive a math topic opener packet every time your child is about to begin a new math topic. You may complete it at home with your child at your leisure. This is optional. I suggest your child cut the vocabulary cards apart and store them in a bag to refer to when working on assignments. Please do not return it back to class. It is a way for you to get a glimpse of the new Topic.
-Review pages will be sent home in your child’s folder the day before the test. Complete the sheets and keep them home for review purposes. We will not be grading or checking their work. We will also review for the Topic tests in class the day before the test.
Independent reading or Raz is encouraged as well as practice on IXL.
-Fundations unit practice packets will be sent home every time we begin a new unit. These do not need to be sent back to school. Test dates will be updated on the class page.
-The Kindergarten sight word list will be posted on Google Classroom. Your child will have a "sight word wallet" that we will utilize in class. We will spend some time practicing these in school and would be beneficial to be reinforced at home.
Level 1 Sight Word Cards: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bHctT-1deulHXgDruFS9CEVpLkn4_guE/view?usp=sharing
-Our google classroom will have additional OPTIONAL resources available.
Birthday Party PolicyBirthdays will be celebrated at lunchtime in the cafeteria. To be sensitive to allergy concerns, non-edible items (e.g. toys, stickers, pencils) are strongly encouraged for these celebrations so that all children can participate in the celebration.If you choose to send in a snack, consider a healthy snack. Also please note that all items sent must be in individually wrapped, pre-packaged portions so that the child can easily distribute to classmates. Ice-cream cakes and whole cakes cannot be accommodated by the food service staff. You can deliver your item and/or treat to the receptionist or send it with the birthday child. Visitors are not permitted in the cafeteria. Birthday and/or Party invitations are not handed out in school, under any circumstances. However, parents are invited to join the class “party list” which will be distributed to parents that join the list. Please contact your child’s teacher directly for this information. We have 22 students in our class.
When the weather does not permit outdoor recess, we will be having indoor recess. Please have your child bring in toys in a ziploc bag. Some ideas would be legos, action figures, pop-its, colored pencils and/or drawing tablets. I will send these home monthly to switch out to hold their interest. As we are limiting the sharing of materials/items, this would be helpful. Thank you for your cooperation!!
Being a bucket filler means that we are kind to one another! We fill each other up with kindness! In our class we will strive to be bucket fillers every day!
I believe that strong parent-teacher communication is essential for a successful school year. I will be updating this class page, Google Classroom, and Class Dojo often. Please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions, comments, or concerns.
