Welcome First Graders

Dear First Grade Friend,

Welcome to First Grade!  My name is Mrs. Mattingly and I will be your teacher.  I am looking forward to meeting you in September. 

On the first day of school, all of the first graders will meet in one big room (usually our gym).  Some of you are new to our school, but you don’t need to worry.  An adult will help you find me.  After we walk to our room together, we will unpack our things, listen to a story, and play a game. 

We will eat snack in our classroom and we will eat lunch in the lunchroom! Please bring these in two different bags.  Your name should be on both bags.  “Snack” should be written on one bag and “lunch” should be written on the other. 

We will play outdoors everyday starting on the first day of school!  Please wear shoes and clothes that help you run and jump on the playground.

I am looking forward to a great year with you.  I love all kinds of books and will read a lot of good stories to you.  I like funny books and ones with colorful pictures.  When you come to school, I hope you will tell me what kind of books you like so that we can read those, too.  I know that we will have fun and learn a lot together.

Mrs. Mattingly
