Please read with your each child each night.
Students will be asked to participate in the 100 Book Challenge.
Students should read to someone for 15 minutes each night. Please ask them questions about their book and help them to think deeply about the text. Then have their logs signed and circle colored in.
On most nights, your child will bring home a math sheet to practice the skills we learned in class that week. Please check their binder for this sheet.
Spelling assignments will not be given however students will be tested on their spelling words each week. We will take a pretest on Monday. If your child gets 13 out of 15 or better on this pretest, they will get a sightly harder list of words to study for the week. Therefore, I would encourage you to have your student practice their words nightly. Tests will usually be given on Friday of each week unless it is a short week, then some adjustments maybe made.
Monday thru Thursday students will have a nightly section to complete on their weekly fact page. They should have someone time them to see how long it takes to complete their 25 facts. The goal is to finish in under 1 minute 30 seconds. Students will then take a 50 question weekly test usually on Fridays. They will have 3 minutes to complete it and must score above 92% to pass. If they do not pass with a 92% or better they will practice the same facts the following week.Students should practice math addition facts, 0-9. Once they have mastered addition facts they will move onto subtraction, multiplication, and then division. Any additional fact practice you can do will help your child succeed
Please check your student's TAKE HOME FOLDER each night for additional assignments. Students are to record assignments in their Homework Log each night. Please sign this nightly.
