    Welcome to First Grade!!
    My name is Ms. Kakos and I'm so excited to be your child's teacher this year!  I love 1st Grade and am excited to see what your child will accomplish.
    First Grade is an important year for students. It is an exciting year, with a lot of fun, learning and individual growth. This is the year that your child will learn many important skills. Reading, Math, and Writing will be our key focus this year, because these skills are the building blocks of our future. Science and Social Studies are integrated into our curriculum.
    I hope this site offers helpful resources for you.
    Important Classroom Info:
    Scholastic Reading Clubs:  Our class code is J3GP9.  If you want to order books for your child online please follow the directions on the sheet.  When you order books, our class earns points.  Those points can then be used to get more books and materials for our classroom.  
    Clever:  Please use this resource to access websites at home.  Please use these Directions for Accessing Clever.
    Homework:  This will be sent home in a homework folder on Fridays.  It is to be completed and returned each Friday.
    • Math - Students will receive math pages for our daily lessons.  I advise you to work on the math homework nightly, as the lesson pages from school will assist with the homework.  
    • Reading Comprehension - At the beginning of each month, students will receive a reading log.  The goal is to read for 10 minutes each night.  Color in 1 picture for every 10 minutes read.  
    • Fundations - The Unit Packets will be sent home at the beginning of each Fundations Unit.  Within the packet, you will find a unit overview, a list of unit and trick words, sentence practice, and additional exercises to use at home to support your child's learning.  The packet is optional. 

    Our Weekly Newsletter is sent through Remind on Fridays.  Contact me if you would like a paper copy.
