Please do not throw away snow packets. I will collect at the end of winter to use in the classroom.
Students should have packet #6 and #7 at home. All work is to be completed in pencil and returned to school the next day we attend. Assignments will be graded and entered into RenWeb as a grade for that day. Please read title page to each packet for complete instructions on the how to's to completing assignments. Students have been instructed to bring home their reading books nightly during the winter months in case of inclement weather. This does not mean they need to read their story nightly, just pull out and use in case of bad weather and school cancellation.
Reading log books:
Thank you so much for signing and reading the log book with your child. They seem excited to receive their new books each week. This book is placed in a baggie with a log sheet. Please sign the log sheet when your child has read the enclosed book. I encourage your child to read the book several times to help with the oral reading, fluency, and word recall. Also, there is a code for you to use to assess your child's reading of the selected material. Please mark E-for easy, JR-just right, or H- too hard. This will assist me in selecting a new book for the next week. Plus, you will be able to hear your child read and listen for the fluency of their oral reading.
These books will go home on Wednesday evenings and be returned by Monday mornings.
Winter Weather Attire:
With winter weather approaching please be aware of your child's winter clothing. We will try to go out daily, so children should have a proper coat, gloves, scarves, and hats. Girls should wear some sort of leggings or tights with their skirts or jumpers. Our playground is very windy.
Students will write in their planners nightly any assignments they may have for the evening. They also include important events that are occurring the next day. Please look over the assignment book nightly and sign in the date box on the far left of that day's assignments. This is also a great way to begin conversations about your child's day at school. Inquire what they have learned that day as well as recall events or happenings coming up.
Snack time will be observed everyday around 9:00am. Children will need to bring in their own snack. Please be cognizant that this is an early morning snack. No candy, chips, or cookies is considered a nutritional snack. We are a peanut free classroom, but not in the cafeteria. Please insure your child knows what items in their lunchbox is for snack and lunch.
On a two-hour delay we do not have snack time.
Students in first grade normally have homework every night. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, students will be assigned to reread their story from their basal reader with an adult. The students are practicing their fluency, comprehension, and decoding of words on these homework nights. Students usually have a math homework sheet that covers the latest skill that was introduced in class that afternoon. This is a review of what was practiced during the day. Eventually, students will be working on mastering math facts for weekly assessments. Late assignments at the beginning of the year will have a 10 point deduction. This will be noted at the top of their paper.
A no name paper will have a 5 point deduction at the beginning of the year.
Grades are posted weekly on our new school grading system, "RenWeb." You will need to log onto your child's account and monitor their grades. If you go to the St. Francis web page, instructions are posted on the "RenWeb" link at the top. Any questions about your account please contact Mr. Eddie Swierkos.
AR books and Assessments:
We have a 20 minute window each day we designated as AR time and students will read silently in the classroom. At the end of the week students will take test on their selected book they have chosen. This allows me to check for their understanding of the story and to determine if the student can move on to a new level. Students do have the availability to move up to more challenging levels when they have completed three books with a 100% mastery at that particular level.
Students will be checking out new AR books on Monday. These books will not come home.
