1 How can I help my child succeed in first grade? Children who succeed in school have parents who provide lots of support at home! Photo by istockphoto

2 Reading Success in First Grade is Critical to Your Child s Future Success Researchers have discovered that there is a 90% chance that a child who is a poor reader at the end of first grade will remain a poor reader. Photo by Fotolia

3 Reading Success in First Grade is Critical to Your Child s Future Success Researchers have also discovered that children reading below grade level at the end of first grade are far more likely to: Leave school before graduating Fail a grade Become a teenage parent Or remain less than fully literate. Photo by istockphoto

4 Reading Success in First Grade is Critical to Your Child s Future Success Now you know why it is so important for parents to provide lots of educational support at home! Reading success comes from high engagement in reading. A child who is highly engaged in reading: Reads a lot Reads a variety of materials And gets pleasure from reading! Jim Trelease Author of The Read Aloud Handbook Photo by Microsoft

5 Reading Success in First Grade is Critical to Your Child s Future Success Reading is an accrued skill. The more your child reads the better reader he is. Kids who read the most read the best! Kids who read the most write the best! Kids who read the most are the smartest! Jim Trelease Author of The Read Aloud Handbook Photo by Fotolia

6 Good Parenting Leads to Good Readers! The most important teachers in a child s life are his parents. A child is with his parents many more hours than he is with his teacher at school Reading to your child, listening to your child read, and making sure that your child reads every day is GOOD for your child. Making sure that you do these things every day is GOOD PARENTING! Jim Trelease Author of The Read Aloud Handbook Clip art by Microsoft

7 Good Parents Read! Children catch the love of reading from reading adults. Children need to see their parents reading everyday! Jim Trelease Author of The Read Aloud Handbook Top photo by istockphoto Second photo by iclipart

8 Good Parents Read Aloud to Their Children Reading aloud to your child every day is the most important thing you can do to help your child succeed in reading. When you read aloud to your child you are modeling good reading and you are teaching your child that reading is fun! Jim Trelease Author of The Read Aloud Handbook Clip art by Microsoft

9 Good Parents Read Aloud to Their Children Children must find pleasure in reading so that they will want to read more. Parents help build pleasure bridges to reading in their children by reading aloud to them every day. Jim Trelease Author of The Read Aloud Handbook Clip art by Microsoft

10 Good Parents Read Aloud to Their Children Listening comprehension precedes reading comprehension. When you read aloud to your child you are increasing your child s vocabulary for reading, writing, and spelling. Improve your child s comprehension skills by encouraging your child to ask questions about the book you are reading to him. Why was the girl so sad? How do you know that? Jim Trelease Author of The Read Aloud Handbook Clip art by Microsoft

11 Children Read to Their Parents When your child reads to you, be patient, listen attentively and don t correct too often. Encourage your child s efforts. Let your child know that you are proud that they are reading! Photo by Microsoft

12 Children who succeed in school have parents who provide lots of support at home! If the school year is 180 days long and the parents provide just 15 minutes of support each of those days, then your child will end up receiving an additional 45 hours of individualized instruction by the end of the school year! Parental support is critical to your child s success. Photo by Microsoft

13 Guided Reading Bags Later in September your child will begin to bring home a guided reading book bag several nights a week. The bag will contain a reading book that your child has learned how to read during his reading group time. The bag will also contain a composition notebook with an assignment requiring a written response. Your child should read the book to you and complete the written assignment in his composition notebook. Clip art by Microsoft

14 Good Parents Help Their Children Master High Frequency Words 50% of all the words in your first grader s books are made up of about 100 words. We call these words high frequency words. It is important for your child to learn to read and spell these high frequency words during first grade. Photo by Fotolia

15 Good Parents Help Their Children Master High Frequency Words Each Monday your child will bring home a parent newsletter that lists five high frequency words that your child needs to learn to read and spell. Use index cards and write one high frequency word on each card. Practice these words with your child until he can read them instantly. Call the words out to your child and have him spell and write them. Your child will be tested on these words each week. Photo by istockphoto

16 Math Facts Your child will be expected to master addition facts with sums to twenty during first grade. Your child will be expected to master subtraction facts with differences to twenty during first grade. Clip art by Microsoft

17 Math Facts Check the weekly Monday newsletter for information about the addition and subtraction facts that your child needs to practice. Your child will bring home homework to help him learn his addition and subtraction facts. Be serious about helping your child master these facts. He must learn them so well that he knows them almost instantly. Right photo by Microsoft Left clip art by Animation Factory

18 Math Homework Math homework will be sent home with your child. Please have your child complete the homework and return it to school the following morning. Clip art by Microsoft

19 Good Parents Limit TV and Computer Use Put limits on TV watching, video games, and computer use. Don t allow the TV and computer to keep your child from having time for reading and other homework. Photos and clip art by Microsoft

20 Sleep First graders need at least 10 hours of sleep each night. Please make sure that your child comes to school well rested so that he can concentrate and learn. Establish a regular bedtime routine to help your child get the rest he needs. A nutritious dinner, happy home life, quiet house, warm bath, cozy bed, dim lights, and a snuggly read aloud will help get your child ready for a good night s rest. Clip Art by Microsoft

21 Breakfast at Home Children learn much better if they have eaten a healthy breakfast. Children who are hungry have trouble focusing and learning. Please make sure that your child has a nutritious breakfast every morning before coming to school. Photo by Fotolia

22 Breakfast at School If your child eats breakfast at school please bring him to school by 7:30 AM so that he will have time to eat and return to his classroom prior to the 7:55 AM start of the instructional day. Clip Art by Microsoft

23 School Hours Children may enter the school at 7:25 AM. Teachers are in their classrooms ready to greet their students at 7:25 AM. Our official instructional day begins at 7:55 AM. Please have your child at school no later than 7:45 AM so that he can get unpacked and ready for the day. Our school day ends at 2:25 PM. Please be prompt when picking your child up at the end of the day. Classroom teachers need the time after school for meetings and planning. Photo by istockphoto

24 Lunch Our class will have lunch in the school cafeteria each day from 11:20 to 11:50. Please be aware that teachers do not microwave food for students. If your child brings a lunch box, please pack foods that do not require warming. Clip art by Microsoft

25 Shoes Please send your child to school wearing comfortable tennis shoes to protect his feet during our daily playground time. Flip flops and shoes without a back are not allowed. Photo by istockphoto

26 S.M.I.L.E. Notebook Your child should bring his S.M.I.L.E. notebook home each afternoon. Please help your child be responsible for bringing his S.M.I.L.E. notebook back to school each morning. Please check the front inside pocket of this notebook each day for information from school to home. Use this same pocket to send notes/money from home to school. Clip art by Microsoft

27 Behavior Calendar A monthly behavior calendar will be kept inside your child s HOME/SCHOOL CONNECTION notebook. The behavior calendar will let you know each day whether or not your child has made good behavior choices at school. Please check the calendar daily and talk with your child about his behavior choices at school. Clip art by Microsoft

28 Reading Log Your child s HOME/SCHOOL CONNECTION notebook will also contain a Reading Log. Please help your child keep a record of additional reading that your child does at home. Clip Art by Microsoft

29 Monday Blue Parent / Teacher Communicator Folder Each Monday we will send home a blue folder that contains some of your child s work. Please review your child s work with him. Keep his work at home. Sign the Monday Folder and return it to school the next day. There will also be a weekly newsletter inside the blue parent/teacher communicator folder. Please read the newsletter each week to find out important information about homework and other news. Clip art by Microsoft

30 First Grade Writing Celebrations One of the highlights of first grade are our writing celebrations! We have several writing celebrations during the school year. These are very important occasions and all parents are invited to attend. Each child writes and publishes a story which he reads into a microphone before an audience. After all children read their stories aloud parents and children enjoy refreshments. Parents are informed in advance about the dates for our writing celebrations through our weekly newsletters. Photo by Microsoft

32 How Can I Help My Child Succeed in First Grade? Practicing reading, writing, and math at home with your child makes a significant difference in his progress. Reviewing math, writing, and reading skills with your child gives you a good idea about your child s strengths and weaknesses. Please give your child extra practice when you notice areas in which he is struggling.
