Mrs. Jessica Swart

Welcome to first grade!!!!!!

My name is Jessica Swart.  This is  my 10th year teaching at Mowrey and my 9th teaching in first grade.  I love flowers and singing and my favorite color is purple.  I am excited for this new school year.

Just a reminder of the school dress code:
NO flip flops.  
Shorts, skirts, or dresses that are more than 4 inches above the knee.

Helpful information about first grade:

- Take home folder: Please check your child's purple take home folder each night. Please initial each day on the behavior calendar. In this folder you will find a number grid to help with child's homework and a list of high frequency words.

- High Frequency words: this year first graders are responsible for reading 165  Students received a green high frequency word card, these are all of the first grade words. 

-100 Book challenge: Students will be bringing home 2 100 book challenge books every night. It is important to read with your child each night and ask him/ her questions about the book. After reading parents need to sign 2 lines on the log.

Daily 5: students will be working independently on literacy skills while the teacher is meeting with a small group .
