Mrs. Naret - 1st Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Naret's Class!

Our first butterfly emerged from it's chrysalis today. Some of the kids got to see it as it happened this morning. They were so in awe and excited!  Before we release it, we’ll check to see whether it’s a boy or a girl. My hope is that we can send it on it’s way sometime tomorrow. 

Superkids Accounts

Emails went out today to those of you who do not have your Superkids Reading account set up.  The email will come from The Superkids Reading Program, not me.  If you did not receive this email, check your junk folder.  If it's not there either, please contact me, so we can work things out.
Follow the instructions in the email to finish setting up your account.
For those of you who already have an active Superkids parent account from kindergarten or a previous child, you WILL NOT receive an email from Superkids to set up an account.  Simply go to, click on School and Parent Login in the upper right-hand corner, and enter your email address and password to log in.
There isn't a whole lot to do there right now because we are still reviewing letters and sounds from kindergarten.  Once we begin the first grade program in about two weeks, you'll have access to the decodable reader, leveled books, Super Duper Magazine, and spelling and memory words games.   

Scholastic Book Orders

Just a reminder that the first Scholastic Book Order is due on Friday, September 7.  You can send the order form/s to school with a check or you may place an order online using the special class code GT888.  If you already have a Scholastic account from last year, or you created one for a sibling you do not have to create a new one.  Click here to go to the website.
