 Literacy: Your child should practice their vocabulary words (BLUE packet) that are sent home with each reading module. They should be able to read the words as well as know their meaning.

Your child will also need to practice their sight words (Green Sheet).   Every student will start with the first list.  When your child is ready to be tested, please send back the "Word Master" sheet filled out.  He/She will then be tested at school. Students should recognize these words, without sounding them out, within 3 seconds. When they fully pass the list, they will be given another list. Prizes will be rewarded after all 6 lists are mastered.  

In addition, your child should be practicing their Phonics Words (YELLOW sheet) and applying the phonics skill that they know in order to read and spell the words.  This will be their spelling words.

 Reading/MathEvery Monday your child will bring home a reading and math log.  The goal for your child is to read for a total of 100 minutes and practice their math facts 25 minutes each week.  For reading, the students can read their story for the week (found online) or any library books or any other reading material at home. Math facts can be practiced by using flashcards or any website online.  An adult should initial the completed log along with the total number of minutes that were completed.

Math- Your child will also be bringing home math homelinks on a daily basis.  These homelinks reinforce the concepts taught in class. They should be completed and returned the following day.  We will go over the answers in class together.  If there is ever a time your child has trouble with the homelink, please write a note on the homework and I will go over it with your child.  :)  

I realize that many of the students have after school activities and other obligations.  I do not want to stress any students out from homework.  I also know sometimes things happen and come up that we can not control.  If this happens, just send a note or email letting me know and your child can turn their homework in the next day.  Thank you!!!
