Homework: October 25

Homework Calendar Activities: Please initial the weekly homework log and turn in ALL written work completed by your child ON FRIDAY! A note on activities: activities on the homework calendar are SUGGESTED, but not required. If your child is still struggling with letter ID and sounds, I would rather you spend the time working on those things. Thank you!

Flashcards: Study sight word and letter team flashcards DAILY! New words this week are: BOY, GIRL, HAS, NICE and the new letter teams are OY/OI and IGH. Please see the Sight Word tab for flashcard ideas. Sight Word Quiz and Spelling Test on Friday! Note: If your child is still struggling with numbers 0-20, please make flashcards for these numbers as well - we are really working hard on these in class!!!

Have Your Child Read To You: Please have your child read the books from their book box AND the books from their book bag every night! If they are struggling with a word, guide them to our reading strategies: Look at the picture, Get your mouth ready for the first sound, Make your finger match the word, Look through the word at all the sounds, Go back and get a running start, skip the word and read on to think about what makes sense, look for a letter team inside the word, stretch out the sounds, look for a smaller word inside the word, look for the magic E! NOTE: YOU CAN USE THIS TIME TO READ ON RAZ-KIDS!!!
 
Read To Your Child: Please read to your child each night for at least 10 minutes and initial the weekly homework log. After you have read to your child, ask them the HOTS questions from your book bag. These questions will increase your child's reading comprehension skills.

Sharing: Write one sentence using a compound word. Draw a picture to go with your sentence. Make sure your practice reading your sentence at home so you are prepared to read in front of the class. Sharing is due any day this week.

Please remember to turn in the Weekly Homework Log on Friday with the written work your child has completed for the week. Please make sure your child's name is written on the Weekly Homework Log and if you could staple all of the work together (Weekly Homework Log on top), that would be a huge help! Thank you!
