Welcome to Ms. Benson's K/1 Combination Class!
The new school year is off to a great start! This week, first graders welcomed our kindergarten classmates and everyone is getting to know each other, learning about our classroom, and practicing procedures and collaborative games.
For the first six weeks of the school year, we focus on creating a positive classroom culture, as well as learning and practicing foundational academic skills for each grade level. Next week in Kindergarten we will begin to learn and practice the letters of the alphabet and numbers to 10. In First grade, we will review concepts from Kindergarten and begin our first math module and our Writer's Workshop. I will share much more information at Back-To-School Night on Wednesday, August 28th, at 6:30. See you there!
Here are some general reminders:-Please send a healthy snack, lunch, and water bottle with your child every day. Remember that we are a peanut-free school, so nothing with peanuts is permitted.-Kindergarteners will still be dropped off and picked up at the Kinder playground. First graders will be dropped off and picked up at the curb by the chain link fence.-If the plan changes during the day, call Raquel in the front office:408-353-1106.-Every Wednesday first graders have early dismissal at 1:30pm.You can subscribe to my webpage, and you will receive notification when I post new announcements, information about special events and field trips, and update the class blog.Subscribe to receive notifications and announcements!
