First Grade News
Week of March 22
"The single biggest indicator of high academic achievement and high ACT scores is reading to children. NOT flash cards, not workbooks, not blinking toys or computers, but Mom or Dad taking the time every day or night (or both) to sit and read them wonderful books.
Thank you for washing the masks daily. Please help all of us remain as healthy as possible.. School policy states a child needs to remain at home until symptom free (fever, vomitting, diarrhea with no medications) for 24 hours. THANK YOU FOR COMPLETING THE COVID FORMS EACH MORNING.
I realize everyone's schedules are hectic. It is very important to continue reading with your child each and every night for at least 15 minutes. While reading to your child is beneficial, your child needs to be reading to you. You can read a paragraph then your child read the next sentence. The more a child reads the more practice they receive and the better the reader he/she will become.
