Hey kids!
Dear new friend, 
My name is Mrs. Moore.  I am thrilled to be your teacher this year! First of all let me say,welcome to First Grade! I hope you have had a great summer, but I also hope you are as excited as I am to start school!  You are going to have such a wonderful time in our classroom.  Each day, you will learn how to become a better reader, writer, mathematician, scientist, and thinker! In my class, you will get to be in charge of your own learning.  You will get to set your own goals,  work hard to reach them, and celebrate your new brain power!  It is so exciting to be a first grader!
I already know you are a special kid.  There is no one in the entire world exactly like you, and that’s what makes you so amazing!  I can’t wait to get to know you better. I want to  find out about your family, what you like to do, and what you are interested in learning.  
I also know you will make tons of new friends within our class! It’s alright to feel a little nervous, but don’t worry, I will help you feel right at home.    Love,
Mrs. Moore
