Behavior/assignment sheets are sent home daily so that parents will be able to see all homework to be completed and if the student had a good day or needs something addressed.  


Academic Expectations

Reading: Reading instruction continues based on the foundation laid in Kindergarten.  Students should know most, if not all, letters and sounds at the beginning of the year.  Guided reading is done in small groups in the reading lab with the additional support of another teacher and a teacher’s aide, so personal care is given to each student.  Guided reading books are sent home for reading practice homework.  A report card letter of E, S, N or U will be given based on current reading level using the leveled guided books.   

Math: An assessment will be given on each chapter or topic.  Fact tests will also be given intermittently.  The report card grade comes from the assessment grades and fact tests. 

Spelling/Writing:  Students are tested on 10 pattern words.  An oral reading test is given on the sight words as well.  These tests determine the spelling report card grade.  Journal writing is done to reinforce the use of sight words and spelling patterns we have practiced.  Through our writing workshop, we also do shared writing, make class books, and write individual and class stories on a variety of themes.  We also focus on learning the basic parts of speech and grammar activities.  The language arts grade will be based on participation in various writing and grammar activities. 

Accelerated Reading:  AR is a computer program in which students read leveled library books and take comprehension tests to earn points and rewards.  Students will start on AR at the beginning of the spring semester.
