A Note From Ms. Smith

Hello 1st Grade Families!

Our 1st graders are doing a wonderful job reviewing Kindergarten material this week.  As we continue, I encourage you to review the following with your child at home:

  1. Ask your child to write a lowercase and uppercase letter on lined paper.  Lowercase letters should not pass the dotted line.
  2. Please review  word families.  In class, students are saying each word and stating which word family it belongs to. This is great practice!
  3. I encourage you to download ABCYA.com (app or website) for good multi subject review.

Thank you for your support.
