READING – Your child will have reading on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights. Every night they will have a reading selection from our reading series. Depending upon the students abilities, each student will start our Accelerated Reader (AR) program at different times during the first or second nine weeks. First grade does not attend the first AR trip. After your child has started AR, they might be bringing their books in addition to their reading assignments. There will be a reading slip in their folder that you will need to sign each night. If your child doesn’t read, please don’t sign it. You are only hurting your child if you misrepresent the truth.
SPELLING - Your child will have spelling words and spelling sentences to write on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights. They will need to write each word 5 times each. This homework will need to be returned the following day. If this homework is not completed, your child will be kept in from recess until it is completed. We will have a test every Thursday. On the weeks that we have to attend school on Friday, we will be having our tests on Friday.
MATH- Your child will have math homework every night. Please make sure that they do it, especially when we start learning our math facts.
SPECIAL PROJECTS – There will be a some special projects during the year.. They will be for a grade. Example = Favorite Book Diorama. You may help your child, but please don’t do it for them. During these times, I will send home a detailed note letting you know all of the details.
