Dear Soon-to-be First Graders,


We cannot wait to meet you!  We hope you are having a wonderful summer full of adventures!  Our favorite adventures come from reading and First Graders should be using books in some way everyday.  You can read them, someone can read to you, you can look at pictures and make up the stories, the possibilities are endless!


When you are working on your BINGO board, you do not need to work alone.  You can read to complete the square or have someone read to you!  


Happy Summer and Happy Reading!



The First Grade Teachers
