Newsletter (Archive links below)Dear Parents:
Spring is almost here! The second trimester ended last week and report cards go home today. Please go over your child’s report card and find both areas that are strengths and an area or two to work on. Conferences are not conducted this trimester but if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me (through email firstname.lastname@example.org; phone call to office 630-393-1787; or a note with your child). Report cards and the signed envelopes are due back next Friday, March 16th. We will begin working on phone numbers, birthdays and addresses for the children. Many of the children do not know this information so please help them study at home too.
In reading we have been working on Flex reading with the other first grades. Some kids stay in the classroom with me, some see Miss Deliberto or Miss Johnson and some see other reading teachers. We continue to work on decoding and finding the Main Idea. Also, we are working on asking questions about what they are reading. In math we are studying graphing and organizing data. In spelling next week the pattern is –ate and -ite. Please continue to help remind your child that their homework packets should come back to school on Mondays and library books are due back on Wednesdays.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or the school # is 630-393-1787. Have a great weekend!
