Welcome to First Grade!

First Grade Impressions

Bienvenidos al primer grado!  We have had a great start to the school year! Together we are getting to know each other through some fun learning activities. I'm learning a little bit about each one of you Everyday. As you are getting to know me, you'll find out that, I love to read, cook and spend time with my family. During the summer I did a lot of swimming. I have a cat named Igen. Did you know that Igen is yes in hungarian? It's been super exciting to learn and grow with all of you!  Hasta luego!

We Are Rockin 1st Grade!



Students will not receive  homework that needs to be turned in. However, they are expected to read EVERY DAY for 15-20 minutes. They should fill out the reading log found in their Practice Binders. Books in their book baggies will be changed once a week. Even if they read all their books before we change them, please have them reread the books. Rereading helps students become better and more fluent readers. Please allow your child to struggle through some of those tough words as well. This process encourages students to use everything they know to sound out or decode the word. We want them to do this instead of always giving them the answer. It is a productive struggle :) 

 In addition, students should  practice what is in their Practice Binders every night. We will change what is in the sheets as needed.

Thank you for your support! 


We will have a time built into the day for a snack. We kindly ask that snacks are peanut free. Snacks should be a healthy option like any fruit or veggie.
