                                              Welcome to Mrs. Taylor's Class   

                                                        August 20-24, 2018

I am very happy your children are in my class.  We are going to have a wonderful year!

At the beginning of the year in first grade, establishing routines is extremely important. The children will be practicing skills in order to achieve automaticity while becoming proficient in expected classrooom routines. Successfully mastering these routines will later be beneficial to their academic progress.

While working on classroom routines this week, we will be reviewing skills and assessing to determine how to best group the students for instruction.

I will check student agendas each day.  Please initial the correct date each evening to let me know you have looked in the agenda.  When homework begins, the assignment will be written in the agenda.

We will not have homework for the first week or so; however, below is the word study schedule that will be followed when homework does begin. 

Word Study Homework:

Monday - Cut out the word study words and sort them under the correct feature.  Read the words to someone.   Put the words in a zip-loc  bag and keep them at home for tomorrow night.

Tuesday- Sort the words.  Write the words under the correct feature (and bring the written words to school tomorrow).  Read the words to someone. 

Wednesday - Sort the  words.  Write the words under the correct feature (and bring the written words to school tomorrow).  Read the words to someone.

Thursday - Sort the words.  Glue the words under the correct feature on a sheet of paper (and bring the glued words to school tomorrow).  Read the words to someone.

We have a time for snack each afternoon.  If you would like for your child to participate in snack time, please send a snack with them the school.

Please remember that we have P. E. each Tuesday and Friday.  Mrs. Calhoun expects the children to wear tennis shoes on these days.
