Welcome to Mrs. Myers' Class!
We're Wild About Learning in First Grade!

 The phonics rules need to be memorized, so that your child can refer to them when reading and spelling.

The following is our new grade scale:
Please forgive me if I accidentally write the wrong letter grade on your child's paper. It is hard to break old habits.
90- 100 A
80-89 B
70-79 C
65-69 D
64 and below F
For a first grader to be promoted to second
grade they must have an 80 or above average
in Reading at the end of the year.

(short, straight line)
