4. We learn a great deal in first grade and it is hard for me to help your child catch up when absent; therefore, it is very important your child attends school everyday if possible. In the event your child is absent, I will send home any work we complete for him/her to complete at home and return in one week. However, often we engage in educational songs, chants, dances, games, crafts, hands-on projects, and buddy/group work in class that cannot be sent home for your child to make up when absent.
