Frequently Asked Questions about First Grade:
Does my child have to read from the bag-a-book every night?
These are the books that we are learning from each day in reading groups. They only need to read them 1 time per night. Also, use the laminated sheet enclosed in the bag for questioning and activity ideas.
Will my child be bringing the bag-a-book home every night?
Since first grade has reading groups Monday-Thursday, the bags will only come home Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. After groups on Thursday, the bags are collected to reorganize and get ready for the following week.
Should my child bring the bag-a-book back to school every day?
We use these books for instruction during their reading group time each day. Failure to return the book results in moving their name down on the PBIS behavior chart.
