Beginning of the Year Letter

Wow…You’re a first grader!


Hello!  My name is Mrs. McIntire and I will be your teacher in first grade.  I am so excited to have you in my class. You are going to learn so much.  We will be doing tons of interesting and fun activities. At times it may be challenging, but all you have to do is try your best.


Make sure to get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast before school because you get to spend the whole school day with me at Hooverville.  You and I will be reading great books, writing wonderful stories, playing fun math games, learning about our fascinating world and so much more.


I hope this will be a special year for you.  Please talk to me when you have something to share, when you don't understand, or when you are upset.  I will try to listen very carefully.  Will you be a good listener, too?  I hope so.


Let’s make this a great year!
