As most of you know, parent teacher conference week is coming up soon. From the 15th through the 19th of October, students will have minimum days and I will have the opportunity to meet with all of you to discuss how the year has been going so far. It is suggested that both parents attend these conferences so that both are on the same page with the child's education. In order to meet the diverse schedule needs of everyone, I have opened up some more time slots for next week as well. So if you would like to get your conference out of the way, you are welcome to do that. In order to schedule your conference, all you need to do is click the link in this sentence or at the bottom of this post. From there, you will select your day and time. It's that easy. If a day or time is not listed, then that means it has already been selected or is not available. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Here are is a few links that will be greatly beneficial to making sure you and your first grader have a successful year.
Back to School Night Slides - Want a refresher on what we went over at Back to School Night?
Fry Sight Words - A complete list of the Fry sight words. First graders should master a minimum of the first 100 words by the end of the year. Ideally, students will exceed the minimum and be well into the higher lists. Do not move on from the red list until the student has shown complete mastery of the entire list.
Eureka Math/ Engage NY - One stop shop for everything you need to know about our math curriculum. You can print any lost homework assignments, see a teacher's edition of the days lesson, or preview what is to come in the future.
