Every day and each week, homework should consist of:


READING:

  • Make new flashcards for the new words and letter teams. 
  • Study flashcards EVERYDAY! 
  • Read Book Bag books 3 times each everyday!

MATH: 
  • Our new math curriculum (with a homework component) will begin sometime after Christmas. Until then, go over the SAXON MATH page in your GO Folder each day, helping your child with any concept that is difficult. 
  • Practice the following math concepts ONLY AS NEEDED:
    • Write numbers 1-30 (challenge: 1-100). Focus on number reversals!
