Students will have homework each week. Homework will go home on Monday with the newsletter and is due the following Friday.
1. Writing Sheet – Your child should complete the handwriting sheet each week. A sheet will be sent home each week that explains how to form the letter and the terminology used. Please supervise your child’s writing to make sure he/she starts their letters at the top. This must be done in pencil so your child can make corrections if needed. If done incorrectly, it is harder to break the habit and he/she will not pass the test on Friday (Letter Checkup). The letter checkup is a four-square assessment that asks them to write the letters from the week and tell a word that begins with that sound.
2. Read at least 15-20 minutes every day!
First Grade, Second Grade
1. Read at least 15-20 minutes every day!
2. Spelling lists will be sent home on Mondays in the newsletter that will be emailed to parents. Please work on these lists throughout the week so students are prepared for the spelling test each Friday. I will also email different ways students can practice spelling words called monthly spellers choice for each month if you would like some ideas.
