Here’s to a successful year of First Grade! It has been a privilege teaching your child! I enjoyed going to work everyday to educate all of my students! Enjoyed them immensely! Parents, you should be very proud of their accomplishments.
Have a fun, safe, and productive summer! Keep Reading Kids!!!!!
PS: Thank you for continuing to read with your child! It truly shows in the classroom. All of the students are reading at their own pace which is to be expected at this time in First Grade. If your child isn’t reading chapter books yet, no worries, they will eventually. It’s imperative that they keep reading Picture Books for comprehension and for fluency! If your child is reading chapter books, great, but they should still be reading picture books, also! Thank you for all of your support this year! It was apparent that you all were pro-active parents, and it showed in the classroom! Thanks Again!!!!!
