Welcome to LEDP 1st grade! Jackie and I are excited for a new school year with our first graders; reconnecting with last years’ K class and meeting our new little ones.
Our new reconfiguration of separating the K/1 group into its own entity is working very well. The smaller group allows us to work a little closer with each and every child.
We did enjoy getting to know the K and 1st graders when we were together as one group. They liked playing games, building with various manipulatives and reading with their new and old friends. The K and 1st grade teachers would like to continue to work together collaboratively ,at times, so they we can expand the friendships between K and 1st grade with art projects and games.
Some of the things the group did before separating are:
· Get to know you games
· Learning to play together
· Reading aloud
· Free play both in and outdoors
· Experiencing and getting to know the staff and the new space
Our daily 1st grade schedule (these times may vary according to weather)
- Check in at the cafeteria
-Snack Outside weather permitting
First grade has a designated homework/reading time built into their schedule, but have not been receiving homework as of yet, Last week we started to utilize this time by beginning All About Me Books .We are having fun learning a lot about our first graders; favorite games, people, animals etc. It is nice for them to see what they have in common with their classmates. Our next theme will be exploring transportation and how they use it to travel. It is always interesting to hear about their travel experiences and for them to realize how travel affects their daily life.
We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead with our new first graders!
Pick up for 1st grade will be at the door by fenced in playground at your assigned time slot.
Please remember- a nut free snack for your child daily and a change of clothes if needed for their cubby.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask us at pick up or email Mary for more information.
Karen and Jackie
