Welcome to Mrs. Woolington’s First Grade English Literacy Class! This will be an exciting year of learning and growing for your child. I look forward to seeing every student succeed in mastering grade level standards in all subjects.
These first few weeks we will spend time focusing on respect, team building, procedures and getting to know each other. I encourage my students to practice good character inside and outside of the classroom and will keep you informed of your child’s experiences throughout the year. I will need your participation and follow-through so that students to understand the realities of their choices, whether good or bad.
The curriculum is guided by the Colorado State Standards, the needs of small literacy groups, and Daily 5. Students will work on building stamina and independence in reading and writing.
Students are expected to read or be read-to in English for 15-20 minutes nightly. This is a great time to bond with your child and help them grow as readers. You will get a monthly reading log and your child should write the title of a book read that night.
Please contact me at the school, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via BLOOMZ regarding any concerns.
I'm looking forward to another great year!
