Dear Star First Grader & Parents,
Hello! My name is Ms. Reynolds and I will be your first grade teacher. I am so happy you are in my class. Over the summer I have been working on activities to make learning fun. In Math, we will be problem solving. You will get the chance to work with a group, a partner, and dazzle me on your own. During Writer’s Workshop we will use the writing process to develop great stories. Your stories will be published during the year and to celebrate you as an author, we will have an Author’s Tea to showcase your best story. We will work on reading fluently and with expression. Our Science program is a hands-on experience which takes a look at the weather, works with balance and movement and we end the year with a unit called From Seed to Plant. First grade is an exciting year and I can’t wait to get started!
On your first day bring a 2-pocket folder, any design or color to be used for homework and important notes for home. Check the school website for additional supplies needed for first grade.
I look forward to meeting you! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
