Good Morning Families!
I’m so glad the new school year has finally arrived! It’s an honor to be your child’s teacher, and I hope you’re as excited as I am to start our journey together.
This week we’ll ease our way into the year with several introductory lessons about routines and schedules. We’ll do several reading activities and do lots of sentence practice, but our core reading curriculum and spelling will start next week.
In Math class, we will dive right in! We’ll begin exploring multiplication and division, and will spend the majority of quarter 1 on those concepts. Depending on your child’s Math teacher, homework assignments may vary from night to night. For the kids in my Math class, I hope to give you an idea when your child will have homework each night in these weekly emails. For example, I am planning on assigning homework on the following nights this week.
Monday – All About You…By the Numbers!
Tuesday – Homework 1-1
Wednesday – None
Thursday – Homework 1-2
Friday – None
Many of the first lessons in unit one take two days, so there will commonly be gaps in the nights they have homework. Of course, if a lesson doesn’t go well, I might skip the homework that night. But, hopefully these emails will give you an idea when to expect homework.
I hope you take a moment to look over our class web site. I still need to polish up a few things from last year, but I hope you find it to be a good resource for this school year. When I get it updated, you’ll see news about spelling lists, field trips, conferences, etc.
I’m sure I’m leaving something out, but the kids are coming and I better get ready! Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for the communication throughout the year!
