Welcome to our Class!
Monday: Fine Arts
Wednesday: Fine Arts
Please remember your child must wear gym shoes to participate in gym class.
One of the most important goals for First Grade is learning (and loving!) to read. Please encourage your child to read daily and continue to read to your child if they are struggling to read independently. I would encourage all families to obtain a Library Card and visit the Oak Lawn Public Library or the Alsip-Merrionette Park Library. Both facilities offer a wide variety of reading materials at whatever reading level your child may be.
First Grade Homework will generally be a page of math that will reflect what was taught in school that day. These pages will be clearly marked as "Homework" and need to be returned to school the following day. Reading Logs will be sent home on Monday and should be returned on Friday, indicating what book was read each night. As we progress further into the school year, weekly spelling tests will be given. Those words will be sent home on Monday and should be studied during the week for Friday's test.
