Included in the back to school paperwork is a class brochure explaining important details of our room. Below is the same information. If you have any questions please ask.
Behavior System: A color coded behavior chart is used in the classroom. Each color correlates with leadership language. Students begin on green and can move their way up to blue and purple based on an extraordinary positive choices. Students may also need to move their way down the chart to yellow, orange or red based on inappropriate choices and breaking of rules. A behavior calendar is in the front of each child's yellow folder and is colored daily. Notes are included on behavior calendar to share explanations for daily colors. Each color is worth a point. These points are added together at the end of each 9 weeks. Students who meet the 9 week point goal get to participate in a special class reward. A classroom treasure box is also used for students who end the day on purple.
Snacks: Students may bring an individual snack to eat. I have extra snacks if students forget their snack from time to time. Snack donations are always appreciated!
Virtual Learning Assignments/ Homework: In the event that vitual/ remote learning assignments are provided, helping your child with work at home will be vital to their understanding and success. Please assist your child in doing their best to complete any assigned virtual or remote assignments in a timely manner. If you have any questions about how to best help your child with any of their work please send me an email or message via Class Dojo. We will help them together!
Nightly Reading: 15-20 minutes of nightly reading is proven to help children grow as readers. Books will be sent home each week that is “just right” for each child. The questions included in the yellow folder are great to use with these books to help with reading comprehesion. New books will be sent home each E Day and are due back on B Day. If books are lost at home, please try to find them. These books have been purchased with my personal money. New books will not be sent until old books are returned to the classroom.
Yellow Folders: 1st grade students do not have agendas please check the yellow folder every day for important communication from the office or myself. Daily behavior reports as well as other resources to help your child find success will be included.
School Fees: A $31.00 supply fee is required to be paid. ($25.00 for laptop fee, $5.00 for instructional supplies and $1.00 for art supplies.)
