Mrs. Gott's Classroom

 Welcome to first grade!

Classroom procedures and learning hints:

Reading:  Please read your child's PACK book with them everyday.  Remeber to fill out the book record and return it the next day.  You can help your child build comprehension skills by asking them to retell the story.  Ask them to tell you what happened first, next and last in the story and about the characters and setting.

Spelling:  You may want to use a dry erase board, play-doh, shaving cream, soap crayons, or even pudding to practice your child's spelling words.  This is a great time to help your child with their handwriting skills.

Math:  Save the family letter that is sent home with each new unit.  This letter contains help for doing homework and fun games to play!
