Wednesday, September 5, 2018

Welcome to First Grade! We had a great day getting to know each other and getting ourselves settled in our new classroom.

Please be sure to check your child’s Take Home Folder each night.  Please sign and return any forms on the “Back to School” side of their folder.  They already have important forms to be filled out and returned to school tomorrow.

Please also be sure to send in any school supplies that your child still needs.

I am looking forward to working with them and you this year!


Thank you,

Mrs. Slattery


Responsibilities of a First Grader

The following is a list of responsibilities of a first grader. All of these will be and have been spoken about in class already, but it is important to provide you with a list so that you may reinforce them at home as well. Since these responsibilities are all new to your child, I will allow for a month until I expect all responsibilities are met. First grade is really about preparing your child to become independent, and I hope by reinforcing the following responsibilities your child will achieve our goal!

Your child should be able to…

•  Work independently at his/her desk

•  Work cooperatively with peers

•  Do all classwork as stated by the teacher

•  Listen to and follow sets of directions given by any teacher or the principal

•  Complete all homework and turn it in the next day

•  Stay seated for a longer period of time

•  Settle minor conflicts and disagreements on his/her own

•  Bring home the books stated by the teacher each day

•  Bring Take Home Folder each day

•  Hand in all announcements or notes from Take Home Folder to the teacher each morning

•  Go to and return from the bathroom without fooling around or making a mess

•  Use proper hygiene (e.g. washing his/her hands)

•  Study and be prepared for any scheduled tests

•  Walk quietly in the hallway

•  Be prepared with all supplies and/or books needed each day

•  Know how to tie own shoes

•  Ask questions (privately or in front of class) if and when they do not understand a lesson or concept

•  Participate regularly

•  Raise his/her hand before speaking

•  Keep his/her area clean (inside and outside desk)

•  Clean up after his/herself

•  Be aware of other’s personal space

•  Use an inside voice

•  Be kind, helpful, respectful to all

•  Keep his/her hands to his/herself

•  Tell a teacher when he/she or another is hurt, in danger, or uncomfortable in a situation
