Welcome to First Grade at South Bay!
Welcome to the South Bay Elementary's First Grade Team Page! We are excited to work with you and your students during this remote learning adventure! While we prefer to see their smiling faces each day, this will do in the meantime. Please reach out via email to your student's teacher if you have any questions; we are here to support each other throughout this.

Parent e-Learning Tips and Videos
We are in this together! As we continue with remote learning, we wanted to provide additional support for you as you assist your children with their lessons. We are stating with math tutorials. Each week, we will post videos for parents to explain the purpose of each math lesson, how it ties into previous learning, and the expected student outcomes for each lesson. Please see the links below and contact your child's teacher if you have questions.
Please read for 20 minutes each night, practice math facts, and look for any additional work your child might not have finished in class. Other first grade homework includes playing outside, eating dinner with your family (if you can) and getting a good night's sleep. Please contact your child's teacher for more information.

Here are some websites we use in class, additional websites will be added throughout the year. If you have any suggestions for additional learning sites that you have used, please let us know!
