1st - Sava

September 11, 2020

Hi Parents,

What a quick and busy week we had in 1st grade.  All the students are really settling into our routine and we’re so pleased with the progress we’ve already witnessed!  Our new curriculum (Wit and Wisdom/Fundations) has started to engage our learners and is already deepening their critical thinking skills when investigating literature, as well as providing explicit phonics skills to develop reading fluency.  

At the Back to School night we’ll be able to provide more information about the new curriculum as well as info on all the other areas your students will be engaged in this year.  This night is a great opportunity to give you a snapshot into the 1st grade world.  Please plan to attend via zoom.  The time schedule is as follows:

5:00-5:30- Remote Learners

5:30-6:00 Dinner Break

6:00-6:30  In- Person Learners

Please plan on attending via this zoom link.  Our meeting ID is (596 166 064) if you’d prefer to just go to the zoom link and join a meeting.  

A few people have been asking about homework.  Studies have shown that worksheets etc. often assigned for homework in 1st grade frequently amount to busy work for students at home. 

Our students work very hard during the day and we want to have HW that promotes learning and isn’t busy work.  Therefore, we would love for you and your child to read for 10-15 minutes a night.  We’ve uploaded a google form in our Google Classroom(GC) for you to fill out for each night.  There’s also a section for the students to type or dictate to you a complete sentence about a book they read during the week.  In another week, we’ll also be sending home spelling words from our Fundations curriculum.  These spelling words can be practiced at home during the week, but we also will work on them in school.   If you have any questions about HW please let us know.

Hello Fabulous First Grade!  
I'm very excited for the 2020-2021 School Year.  All students (in-person and remote) will be utilizing the 1st Grade Google Classroom.  You'll need to log in with your student's email and password which will be assigned.  Here's the link to the classroom to log in once we've assigned emails etc..
