Dear Parents and Students,

Happy Monday and Happy Fall! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! 
Mrs. Juchem will be hosting our Parent University again this year!  Please be sure to sign up for this- it is a great way to help you, help your child with their math homework and gain a better understanding of how they are learning!
If you haven't already done so...please sign up for REMIND.
Text: 81010 with Message: @mrsisolac

This will allow you to be informed of any reminders needed for school and our class.  I will not be sending home reminders in your child's folder, so please make sure you sign up ASAP!
This web page will inform you of what your child will be learning each week.  Please be sure to check it often! It will also have reminders for you, as well as events going on in school! 


**Some Information for You!**

-Your child will need one (1) HEALTHY morning snack every day! Some examples are yogurt, fruit, granola bar, pretzels, Goldfish, Cheerios, etc! They will also need to bring their own water bottle each day.  The only thing they can drink at snack time is water! This should be in a bottle with a sports top or pop up straw (tops that screw off often make spills that we try to avoid!) 
-Please refrain from sending your child to school with peanut butter as we have a few children with severe allergies.
- Remind your child about the importance of staying safe in our classroom.  This means we keep our hands on our own bodies and we raise our hand to leave our seats.
- Remind them to ALWAYS ask for help.  
-Remember to have fun while learning!

This week in 1-2:

We will finish up Chapter 1- Addition Concepts.  We will be taking our first math test on Tuesday. You should be practicing your child's addition facts to 10 nightly! We will also begin Chapter 2- Subtraction Concepts. This math may be new to some of you, just like it is to the students.  If at any time you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  We are all learning together :) 
**Sometimes you may see pages in their take-home folder that we completed in class.  It will show you how the lesson was taught that day. These will be sent home with the intention to help you assist your child, if needed, with his/her homework!**

If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me!  E-mail is a great way to get in touch with me, but you can always call the main office and leave me a message.  I will get back to you as soon as I can!
