First Grade--Where You'll Watch Your Child Grow!
Congratulations! You are the parent of a first-grader here at Fort Lee School #1. You will be amazed at just how much your child will grow this year. Most likely, your child has had the seeds of reading and writing planted, and during first grade, those seeds will grow and blossom, making your child an accomplished reader and writer! You will see changes in your child's thinking, as he/she becomes familiar with abstract concepts and symbols. The change will be dramatic--- just compare a tiny seed with a full grown sunflower! That's the kind of growth you'll see this year!
Ways to Help Your Child Blossom
The most lovely flowers usually have the best gardener--and that's you! Staying involved in your child's education is the key to a successful year. Check your child's take home folder EVERY evening. You'll usually find it PACKED with homework, projects, flyers, notices from the office, as well as notes from us. As daunting as it may be, try to sort through them, and read each one: they often contain important information and reminders. Your child should come to school the next day with a fairly empty folder --- just completed homework and maybe a note to me.
I am always available to meet or speak to you. If it is not urgent, please jot a note and I will respond as soon as possible. My email me is firstname.lastname@example.org, in return, I will contact you by note or telephone if there is something to discuss.
PLEASE START TO TUMBLE WITH US
Our new TUMBLE BOOK LIBRARY is an online collection of talking picture books. Your child will be able to access this library in class, home or anywhere with an internet connection. It is available on multiple devices. Let your child TUMBLE into READING.
