Ways to help your child practice at home:

1. Hang up the sight words and ball words cards on their wall or door 

2. When you are in the car, ask them beginning sounds of things they see, rhyming words, count syllables in words, count how many trucks they see in 1 minute...

3. Have them sort laundry by color and/or size

4. Set goals with rewards

5. Have them explain their work and homework to you as if they were the teacher

6. Have them practice writing simple sentences with correct punctuation. 

 

 

 

School Information Below

 

Bell Times: 8:55-3:10 (Doors open at 8:30). If students are not in the classroom by 8:55 they are considered tardy.

Breakfast: Your child must go directly to the cafeteria to get breakfast before coming to class. They will eat in the room and must finish by the 8:55 bell.

Planner: Your child will bring their planner home daily. Please check it and sign it every day as this will be our main communication. I will check it in the morning for any notes and/or lunch money. I will also send test scores, weekly skills to practice at home, and any other important information in it.  

Homework: I will send the weekly homework packet home on Monday and it is due in full by Friday.

Snack: We do not have a specific time for snack. Students receive snacks throughout the day. Please do not pack individual snacks. We will take class donations of store-bought items throughout the year (pretzels, animal crackers, goldfish, cereal). Please be sure to let me know if your child has ANY ALLERGIES!

Uniform: Please make sure your child is dressed in school wide uniform attire and color. On Friday, students may wear a Diplomat Theme Shirt (Can be purchased at the school store).

Dismissal: For the safety of your child, I need a written note if your child is changing the way they go home at any time. Please send in the yellow piece of paper.
