As Salaamu Alaikum!
Welcome to first grade! I am so excited to have you in my class this year!
There are a lot of changes in our first grade room this year but I promise to do my best to make our students just as comfortable and excited about learning as I always have. This year we will be using our Ipads in order to read safely without using shared books in class. Students will have a RAZKids account as well as an EPIC account in order to foster their love for reading.
We will begin this year by reviewing key skills from Kindergarten in order to close any gaps due to last years abrupt school shut down and our wonderful quarantined summer.
In order to keep students safe we will not be using community supplies this year and any class manipulatives will be sanitized after each child uses them. Because of this please be sure to bring in the requested items on this years supply list on the first day labelled with your child's name.
