Welcome to First Grade in Room 208!
Your child will learn and grow so much this year.
Please encourage your child as he/she learns new skills at school and help them practice at home. The biggest focus in first grade is READING! You can help your child become a better reader by reading to them and listening to them read to you. When you go to the grocery store, have them read food labels and signs. In the car, let them read the road signs to you. In a restaurant, read the menu together. There are opportunities EVERYWHERE to read.
