    We will play, learn, and grow together!

    Have a safe, fun-filled summer!


    We are beginning to make our way through our reading, writing, math, and word work units in class.  Your child is beginning to become accustomed to the full-day setting and learning our classroom routines and procedures.  If you have any questions/concerns, please be sure to contact me at hocking@oaklandschoolsnj.org. Please leave your preferred contact method, and I will get right back to you!  

    We are currently reinforcing and practicing the skills of keeping our hands to ourselves, personal space, and being a good friend.  Please talk about and review these topics at home with your child.  We are reading stories, watching videos, and talking about how this affects our friends when we do not keep our hands to ourselves, or mind each other's personal space. 

    Please review the importance of washing your hands with your child as well as covering your cough and sneezes and not putting things that are not food in your mouth.  We are reviewing this in class, and are trying our best to promote these skills in order to prevent spreading germs to keep our class healthy.  Thank you for your support!  

    Homework is being given daily from Monday through Thursday.  My extra help day is Tuesday from 3:30 to 3:50.  

    **If you notice your child struggling with any of the homework/word work that is sent home, please either send in a note or email me.  I do not expect your child to finish the assignment if it is too hard for your child. We will then work one-on-one with your child to ensure that they are understanding the content. The purpose of homework is extra practice and to reinforce of the things taught in class, not to frustrate them or to be too tricky.**

    Thank you so much for your support! Please contact me with any questions or concerns about your child!
