I will not be sending home math homework. I do encourage you to play the monthly math game included on the first grade newsletter each month.
All students will be expected to bring home books on their reading levels. The range of levels for your child will be highlighted on the reading log folder. Your child should read for 20 minutes a night. Please fill out the reading log every night. After the first nine weeks, if your child is on an E or higher, he/she will complete a reader's response on Mondays and Wednesday nights.
If your child is below grade level, you may also want to use Kids A-Z as an extra online resource for practice on your child's independent reading level. Also, work on sight word lists every night. These are sent home in the book in a bag as well.
Some students might be working on Fast Phrases as well. This will help with fluency and I encourage you to work on these as often as possible.
Monday: Child reads the LL list twice, Parent signs beside Day 1.
Tuesday: Child reads the LL list twice, Parent signs beside Day 2.
Wednesday: Child reads the LL list twice, Parent signs beside Day 3.
Thursday: Practice Test (include List A words and the two new sentences)
Friday: Spelling Test
