Welcome back to school! I am so happy to have each of you in my homeroom. This year is going to be packed with learning! You will see your children become readers! We will cover many topics in Math like place value, even and odd, addition/subtraction facts up to 20, measuring, regrouping and much more. Our classroom will be a community of thriving learners. We will be talking all year about the Power of YET! Making mistakes is an important part of learning and not being able to tackle a task with success YET gives a learner goals.
Each night there will be homework. The purpose of homework is for your child to practice what we learned in school that day. I ask that you spend time at the end of your day checking their homework and signing their homework books. Coming prepared each day helps children start their day off on the right foot. If you have any questions, please feel free to send in a note or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
