My first year in first grade has been a blast!! We've had so many fun times, that this year has flown by. First grade is not an easy year for many kids, as it is such an important year! We have went from nonreaders to fluent readers, from counting to 20 to counting to 120 and beyond. We not only learned so many academic concepts as we have also learned how to collaborate and make friends. I am blown away by how much your children have grown academically, socially and physically just this year! Thank you for helping my job become a little easier by supporting them academically at home and following through with them on any behavior concerns we encountered during the year!
I have tried my best to get them to become the "smartest first graders in the school", like I mentioned to them frequently throughout the year. With this in mind, I have created a data binder for each child to take home with many assessments and writing we have completed throughout the year. You can see the progress they have made, as well as see any academic holes they still may be missing and need to practice over the summer. If you have any questions about their progress this year, feel free to email me after you have checked out all of the great projects/ assignments they have completed!
We created a little thank you video as well, it is attached below!
