Mrs. Bowen's First Grade Class
Reading Goals: Students are responsible for earning 5 AR points each 9 weeks. I have an AR reading block each morning from 7:30-8:10 and again from 10:40-10:55. Students can exchange their library books each morning.
Math Goals: Students are completing timed math facts assessments each week. Each child has a goal to pass all addition and subtraction facts within 20 by the end of the school year. Each child is required to pass one set before they go to the next set. For example, they have to pass the +2's before moving on to the +3's. They are given 2 minutes for 25 math problems (many of the problems are repeating problems).
You can help your child at home to meet their goal by practicing addition and subtraction facts. Flash cards are an easy way to learn the facts mentally.
Please attend school everyday! Attendance is very important.
