New Schedules

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone is healthy and enjoyed their long break from school.  
I have sent new schedules to everyone in their Seesaw accounts.  Normally in class, we change groups as children's learning needs change.  I have changed our math format to be small groups only.  Your child will now have 2 math groups per week, rather than coming to math daily and staying for an extra small math group.  The small math groups will allow me to work more closely with each child.  
*Please log in to your child's Seesaw account to see or print their new schedule.  
I just want to remind everyone that it is not necessary to sit with your 1st grader during their Zoom meetings.  Part of 1st grade is building independence and responsibility.  Your students are even capable of doing most of their work independently.  They will definitely need your help to stay on task, move to the next activity, they will probably need help with following their schedule in the beginning.  
Thank you so much for everything you do.  At least you can take a break during Zoom. 
Please let me know if you need anything.  
P.E. is on Tuesday at 8:30am and I will see your student on Tuesday at 9am.  
Have a great weekend! 

December Supply Drive- Thru!

Come pick up a bag full of work and activities for December. Pick up will be this Wednesday, December 2nd from 12-2:30pm.  Please drive-thru at the parking lot by the church. It will be in the parking lot by the LdV office.  
Bags will be on a table with your child's name on it.  There will also be a surprise for each child.  Please only take the items with YOUR child's name on them. 
Thank you!  
*If you know that you are unable to pick up on Wednesday, please let me know. I will let you know what arrangements can be made.

Reading Tests (DRA) Week After Thanksgiving!

I will assign your child a time to meet with me on Zoom to take a Reading Test.  This reading test will let me know what Reading Level your child is currently at and where we need to work with them to improve.  Your child may be assigned to read with either myself or Miss K.  A link will be in their Seesaw and I will email you to notify you of the day/time.  When you receive the email please let me know if that day/ time will work for your family!  
Thank you!!


I just wanted to let you know that I have archived the activities from the First Trimester.  Any unfinished work that I assigned before Nov. 2, 2020 has been removed.  Please check that your child completes all of their assignments daily and that by the end of the week that they have all assignments turned in and complete.  
Thank you!
