Phone Calls
Please call, email or leave a Remind message how often you want me to talk to your child on the phone. Some parents prefer only a few calls and others more frequent contact. I miss the kids and I miss seeing them in the classroom. I want to make sure your child knows I am here to help them. We can also set up a Zoom session.

My classroom phone has been forwarded to my home phone.
Please call if you have any questions, need help or just want to say "hi."
Many of you will receive calls this week to practice skills we have been working on in the classroom. Mrs. K will be making the calls.

I just uploaded my first Youtube video. Please visit this link

 End of year assessments: The daily work pages this week will give you an idea of how your child is performing on first grade Language arts and Math skills. I will not use these for grading purposes but I would appreciate it if you emailed the results to me so that I can pass along the information to your child's second grade teacher.
