Home work expectations

As parents we are our child's first teacher.  Supporting your child with homework will help develop skills and work habits that will last a lifetime and make for life long learning.

 

Please check your child's backpack and take home folder daily.  We will send most school wide papers home on Wednesdays.  At times, I may need to send things home that are not Wednesday.

Your child will have homework everyone night, Monday-Thursday.  It will be a math sheet working on basic facts, word problems, or playing math games we have learned in class.  Other things you can do at home to help your child continue to learn math, would be:

  • Telling time to the half hour
  • Counting money up to a dollar and recognizings the coins for a penny, nickel, dime and quarter
  • Count to 100 both forward and backward
  • Count by 2s, 5s, and 10s.   
  • Make math word problems
  • Have your students put things in categories/sort

 

For reading, the expectations are that you and your child read for 20 minutes a night, this would include Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.  It is always good to read to child but also have them read to you.  They will be bringing home books that they should be able to read to you also.  Some of the students will also have cards that have our "must know" words.  Once they have read or were read to, please fill out the piece on the calendar for that month.  The monthly reading sheet is due within three days of the month ending.
