Homework: Students will have homework Monday - Thursday. The purpose is to enhance the school/home connection and develop responsibility and organizational skills. This short homework assignment is the student’s responsibility, but they will need your support to succeed. Please check the red Take Home Folder every evening.
Reading: Please read with your child 15 minutes every night. Daily reading is critical for developing fluency and vocabulary. It is important you continue to read to them and that they read their guided reading books to you. Students who complete the monthly reading log and meet the class goal will receive a prize.
Spelling: Spelling will begin in mid-September. The words and sentences will come home on Monday. The quiz will be on Friday. The students will be learning to spell sight words that they frequently use. They will also learn how to spell other words by changing the beginning or ending of these words. The amount of time spent practicing spelling words will be an individual decision based on your child’s needs.
Math: Family letters will be sent home in the red Take Home Folder at the beginning of each unit. These letters introduce the unit and give good tips.
