As you know the plan is to begin Home Reading next week…but I need some help. Every morning the students will bring their Home Reading Folder back to school. I’m looking for helpers who can check-in folders, listen to students read their book and help students pick a new leveled book to take home the following day. I will also need your help to “test” students who have been practicing their word wall words and are ready for a test. I usually prefer to do this activity first thing in the morning, but I can be very flexible. It may take a little bit longer in the beginning, but after a routine is built I don’t think it should take over an hour. If enough people are interested I may even be able to put two helpers on one day and that would make it take only about a half-hour. (I have a helper lined up for Tuesday and Thursday, so I really need people for Wednesday and Friday. Monday we don’t need one because we don’t take the folders home over the weekend.) This position is weekly.
I’m also looking for someone who could help with Friday Folders on Friday afternoons. It might take about 20-30 minutes. It just requires sorting some papers into cubbies, putting notes for everyone into folders and putting student work from cubbie into their folder. This position is weekly.
The last job I’m looking for right now is one or two people who could make copies on Thursdays and prep some of the materials that we would need for the next week. I will teach you how to use the copy machine. I would like to have a weekly volunteer, but if you could do at least every other week, that would be helpful.
If you are interested in any of these jobs beginning next week. Please let me know so I can make a schedule to put up on the website. Thanks so much in your interest to help out in our classroom. I would also like to have some parents help with centers at some point, but we haven’t been able to start this routine yet. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FIRST GRADE FAMILIES!!! Please email if you would like to fill a position. Thanks!
**A volunteer can parent, grandparent or someone you know who is interested and reliable.
