Class Dojo is an app that allows the teacher to reward or take away points depending on the child’s behavior. As parents you have access to this app and can check how your child is doing in the classroom. You can even send a message on this app if you have any questions or concerns. Or, if you just want to tell your child they are doing great today!
Students will have a blue folder that they will take home every night. In the front pocket of this folder are items they can keep at home. The first page will be our monthly newsletter I will be sending home for parents. It will mention important dates and events going on in the classroom. The next page will have a contact form if you need to contact me quickly about something. The next page will have blank pictures the students are supposed to color after they have read at home. By the end of each month this should be colored in all the way. The child will be rewarded for their reading!
I recommend reading with your child for at least 15 minutes 5 nights of the week. This will allow their reading skills to grow and they will be rewarded for their reading time. I also recommend practicing their sight words with them so they can meet their first grade goals! These will be located at the very back of the folder.
