Hello Grade One Families!
We had a great first week back, but there were sure some tired people in the room by Friday afternoon! I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend. Here is some information about this week in Grade One:
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Students from Grade One and Grade Four will be leading the Assembly this Friday. Please join us!
Tomorrow we will begin the written comprehension component of the home reading program. Your child will bring home a green duo-tang containing their home reading book, assignment criteria, and comprehension assignment sheet. Please follow all of the instructions on the criteria sheet carefully. The students know that following the instructions for an assignment is very important and they will benefit from having this reinforced in their written homework as well. The comprehension sheet includes several choices of assignments. Please have your child read the book first and then choose an assignment together. When completing the written comprehension assignment, please discuss the answers with your child and help with spelling, grammar and punctuation as necessary. If the assignment includes a picture, please have your child draw it in the space provided. I will go over this with the students on Monday. Please do not hesitate to e-mail me with any questions you may have after you have seen the green duo-tang. Finally, I will reinforce with the students that they should keep the green duo-tang home for as long as it takes to throughly read the book and complete their chosen assignment. When students do return the home reading, they will receive a new book and sheet the next day (to give me time to mark it).
Please return any home reading books that you currently have at home tomorrow (Monday).
Have a wonderful week!
