Wecome to Mrs. Hoskins First Grade Class!
I am so thrilled to have your child in my classroom this year! This year will be filled with a lot of learning and adventures. Our class web page will have a lot of useful information for you to refer to. I will update the website weekly, so please check back for important information!
What Should I Bring On The First Day Of School?
Please send in all of your supplies (including backpack) with your child so that we may begin labeling/sorting them. You may label the supplies with your child's name prior to the first day of school. Have your child bring in a lunch box if they are eating a home packed lunch. Don't forget your smile! :)
Our class binder contains our school planner, weekly newsletters, homework, spelling word lists, sight words (which should be practiced nightly :) ), or other important information. This will be used as a main source of communication. Please sign your child's binder EVERY night. Please feel free to write notes to me or let me know any questions or concerns you may have in the binder.
I use class dojo to send reminders and to update you on your childs behavior in class. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me after school hours from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. After that time frame, I will not be responding to any messages till the following morning.
Will we have AR this year? How can I track my child's progress?
We will be participating in Accelerated Reader (AR) again this year. The students will have a folder that will be used to track AR goals and achievement throughout each quarter. Every child will be given a point goal to achieve and an expectation that they will maintain an average of 85% on their AR tests. The goals have been individualized to meet each child's needs. Students are asked to read their book at least 2-3 times before taking an AR test. Please fill in your child's book title nightly in the reading log. After your child takes an AR test I will write their score in the reading log, that should be checked and signed nightly.
