Mrs. Van Wright's Class

September 2020


Parents, Guardians and Amazing Students,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Kiyoi Tolliver- Van Wright and I will be your childs teacher. I have been teaching first grade for almost 20 years at School 9. I know that this school year is going to start off far differently than expected, but we can do this! We will all need to be patient, considerate and transparent. 

Below, I have shared classwork files that consist of assignments for your child to complete each week. Please take time each day to work on reading and math (as we will do in class). It is very important to focus on letters, sounds, sight words, sequencing, and key details skills for reading. In math, please, focus on numbers, counting, number bonds and addition. Below, you will find weekly assignments that will continue to sharpen your skills.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Please email me questions, comments or pictures of yourself working hard.

*Parents, please email/send clear pictures of finished work to me. I will keep track of finished assignments based on your pictures. If you should have issues printing work, please use paper that you have at home (Label, number and write answers)


My office hours are 8:35am-3:15pm, Monday through Friday. Please feel free to contact me regarding your child.


Looking forward to a different (but great) year, 

Mrs. K. Van Wright
