Ms. Sinness, Grade 1

Welcome to first grade!

We have a co-teaching model for our Math block in first grade. Ms. Keung will be joining our room for an hour every morning.  In each math group, we will target skills that your child needs.  Some of our first grade skills are:  numbers 1-120, addition, subtraction, time, money, shapes and measurement.

Our literacy blocks are a combination of whole group and small group lessons, with the goal of every first grader reading beginning-level chapter books by the end of the year.  In order to achieve this goal, we have partnered with the Minnesota Reading Corp, and have a full-time tutor assigned to our classroom.  Her name is Ms. Molly.

Our homework in first grade is sent home on Monday (packet) and is due on Friday.  Homework completion is graded on the first grade report card.  Please contact me if you would like to volunteer in our room or if you have any questions:
