Do the children have homework every night?
Yes! Homework takes different forms. It does not have to be a written page. For example, every child should read or be read to every night. Math games or suggestions for activities are sent home as part of the math program. Play the games with the childrenBack to Top
What is the best way to get in touch with Mrs. J.?
If there is an "emergency" or something that I must know at the beginning of the school day, please stop by and see me before school. Otherwise, you can call me at school, send a note or send an e-mail.Back to Top
Should I help my child with her/his homework?
Sure. Ask her/him to read the directions or tell them to you. You also might read them to your child and then have the child repeat them in her/his own words. Also remember to have the word wall as well as the handwriting card in a place where your child can see them and use them.Back to Top
What is a 'word wall'?
It is a four sided laminated card that has frequently used words listed on it. Yes, you can add words to it. Just use a permanent markerBack to Top
What is a good bedtime?
In my opinion, 8:00P.M. is the latest that most first graders should be going to bed. It may vary a bit for some of the children. It is always a good idea to listen to soft music and/or read a book for a little while.(YES! I know that there may be occasional 'special' reasons why the children stay up later.)Back to Top
