Welcome!

We celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday with our friends in Mrs. Bobier’s class.  A week of fun reading and writing activities also included trying “green eggs and ham” and making a Cat in the Hat snack.

 

We are participating in Lent through offerings of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  Students have a different task daily to keep them focused on drawing nearer to Jesus throughout the Lenten season.  We are participating in Stations of the Cross on Fridays, and making books to help us grow in understanding of Jesus’ journey.


 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Our field trip to the Museum of Osteology is planned for April 7th.  We are looking forward to learning more about animals in our science unit!

Homework Policy

 Homework serves to reinforce concepts learned in class and provide an opportunity to prepare children to form good habits! It is not considered "busy" work, but rather RESPONSIBLE work. :)

  • First graders will be responsible for homework assignments every week.  Homework will go home on Monday and all completed work is to be returned the following Friday morning.  If received on the Monday following, homework is considered LATE and points are taken off. If student is absent on Friday, homework may be turned in on Monday, no penalty.  No homework is accepted past Monday and will be counted as a "zero". 

  • Each night’s homework will consist of 10 minutes of reading and 10-15 minutes of other subject area work such as math, writing or spelling.

  • All first graders will be held accountable for weekly homework through self documentation and a parent’s signature.  Students will keep track of what they read each day through the use of a reading log.  Parents will sign acknowledging that their child read for the required minutes.

  • It is our goal to prepare children to be responsible adults.  Therefore, children must be responsible for turning in their completed Reading Log/Homework Packet every Friday morning.  Students that turn in their Reading Log/Homework Packet complete and on time will be rewarded by participating in “Free Choice Friday” for the last 30 minutes of class time.  Students who do not turn in their Reading Log/Homework packet, or turn in an incomplete Reading Log/Homework Packet, will finish their homework during “Free Choice Friday” time.

  • Incomplete class work may be sent home for homework at the discretion of the teacher.
