Homework will be assigned to your child everyday. A READING homework calendar will go home on a monthly basis. The MATH homework will be worksheets taken from the math series. At times, there will also be storys books that will need to be read 2 times each, signed and returned.
In an effort to reinforce and enrich our students’ learning, your child will receive a monthly reading homework calendar (math will be workbook pages). The homework calendar will include activities such as letters, writing, sentences, as well as other areas in need of practice. These are concepts that students should practice on a daily basis.
I will need your help to ensure that our students get this essential practice. All activities will be quick and can be done with materials found around your house. If additional materials are needed, I will provide them. These activities can be done in the car or at the dinner table, as your child will only need a moment or two to complete them. We know that your schedules are busy. However, your child will benefit most from quick daily practice rather than completing several activities all at once.
While this calendar is a guideline for activities, you may find that your child needs extra practice in a particular area or more challenges in others. Use your best judgment as to when to add additional practice for your child. LET YOUR CHILD DO THE WORK, PLEASE DO NOT DO IT FOR THEM.
I ask that you initial each box every night as the activity is completed. Please keep the calendar in your child’s folder on the SEND BACK side; I will check the folder every day to monitor your child’s progress. Calendars will be collected by the first week of the following month, for records of completed homework. PLEASE DO NOT LOSE THE CALENDAR.
As always I want thank you for your support in helping our students. I look forward to seeing how the calendars will further enrich our curriculum. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
