Homework Updates

*In 1st grade we slowly ease into the homework process, please don't worry if you don't see all of the item below come home right away. 

HOMEWORK FOLDER and AGENDA BOOK

 


Each night your child will bring home their homework folder and agenda book as well as a parent folder. Please check these folders each nigh, complete the homework (1st graders) and paperwork (parents) inside and return them to school the next day. First graders should do as much of their homework as they are able to independently.  Parents please check and sign your child's agenda book each night.  This system teaches children organization and responsibility and helps everyone to stay on top of things. 


READING LOGS and BOOK BAGGIES

Book baggies and reading logs will go home on Monday and need to be returned completed by the following Monday.  Please have your child read aloud to you for 15 minutes each night and help them complete their reading log.  They should read as many books as they can in the allotted time.  Though your child will be reading more than one book a night, for now, please help them to choose one book to write on their log.  By the time your child returns their book baggy the following Monday they should be able to read each book in their baggy with fluency and accuracy.


SPELLING  TESTS 

Spelling words for the week will be sent home on Mondays.  Spelling tests are on Friday.  Please help your child study for a few minutes each night.
