1st Grade Info
On your student's birthday, you are welcome to arrange a time to come in and read a book to our class. Please contact me at least a week prior to their birthday if you're interested. Students may also bring a non-edible treat to pass out to classmates (25 students).
Each student will start the day with 3 cubes and will lose a cube when given a small reminder. If a student loses all 3 cubes for the day, there will be a brief note in the Parent Comment box in their planner about what happened. If they do not lose all 3 cubes, you will not see anything in their planner :)
We hope this helps both students and teachers be more accountable for keeping those small reminders in mind, working toward the self-control and independence needed for second grade. It will give students a chance to notice a mistake and give them plenty of chances to fix it. We will still be using reflection sheets that go home for more serious offenses.
