First Grade Teacher at Harlan Elementary

I am looking forward to a great year!! 

For information about our classroom, click on the links to the left of the screen.  There is information about what is happening in our classroom as well as upcoming events. 

My planning time is (11:35-12:25).   Our school number is 573-8700, option 2.   Please contact me during this time if you have any school related questions.

Welcome to first grade.  It is a year of challenges.  Your child will tackle reading skills this year.  It is necessary to practice at home for success in reading.  If we work together, you will be amazed at the way your child will be reading by the end of this year.  Math skills will also be focused on and our new program called Envision Math  is absolutely awesome.  I look forward to a great year with my students.  Let's get busy!!! 

Reading and Homework Routines 
Your child will have 
reading homework each night.  It is important that reading book and green assignment folder are returned to school each day for reading group time.  Please sign the reading sheet each night so that I know you have gone over the assignment with your child.  Practicing reading at home is a very important part of helping your child become a successful reader this year.  I very much appreciate your help at home. 
Please practice each night, even if no new assignment is given, rereading helps them to develop confidence as a reader.  Also look over the sheet about helping your child tackle unfamiliar words.  There are some great strategies to use in developing word recognition.

We will be working with words all week in class, but students are expected to study words at home and be prepared for the test on Friday.  If it is a 3 day week, then no test will be given.   Spelling homework sheet has nine activities on it.  Students choose three in a tic-tac-toe pattern.  Please send all spelling sheets back to school with homework sheet initialed on the three activities your child chose to do.  Spelling homework is always due on Friday. 
 Note:  Words can be found on Week at a Glance.

Check backpacks daily 
Please check your child's backpack each evening and return any necessary homework or papers.    Thanks, Ms. Sexton

Math Homework 
Math homework will be sent home on Tuesday and Thursday to help practice math skills as needed.  We will be working in a program called Envision math.
