Welcome to 1st grade!I am Ms. Grow and I am very excited to work with you this year. This is my 6th year teaching first grade at Discovery and I look forward to working with you to make this a positive year of learning for your 1st grader!Reading is a huge part of 1st grade, so practice reading at home as much as you can! Any type of reading is helpful for your child, whether it's talking about the pictures, you reading a story to your child, or your child reading a story to you. Scholastic has some wonderful books for a reasonable price, and our classroom uses Scholastic Book Clubs. If you go to scholastic.com, you can create a free account with our classroom using the code LHBCX. The best part is, when you order online you get FREE shipping and can earn coupons for FREE books. Happy book shopping!Please help your child be successful in school by checking their backpack every day and looking in their daily folder for important papers and information. If you have any forms or papers to send to school, please use the folder, as I will be checking it daily as well.If you need to contact me for any reason, please use the following information:Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgPhone Number: (320) 251-7770 Ext. 3815Here's to a great year!
