Our First Week of Homework

Flashcards: Please make flashcards for our new sight words (WE, CAN, SEE, A) and letter teams (EE). Study these flashcards every day. Have your child read the word, spell the word, then read the word again. You do not need to bring these flashcards to school. They are to stay at home so you can practice them every night. Please see the Sight Word tab for more flashcard ideas. We will have a spelling and dictation test on our sight words every Friday! A dictation test means we will be asking your child to dictate a sentence using the sight words of the week. We will not only be looking for the words to be spelled correctly, but also for an uppercase at the beginning, spaces between words, and a period at the end. An example of a dictation sentence may be "We can see a dog." It may be a good idea to have a practice test with your child on Thursday night! 

Reading: Read to your child every day. Have your child find sight words in the books that you are reading. 

Math: Practice counting 1-30 or higher, identify numbers out of order (make number flashcards!), number writing practice, and practice drawing shapes. Please see your child’s Number Writing Assessment  that was sent home. 

Writing: PRACTICE WRITING YOUR NAME with an uppercase only at the beginning. Practice writing ABC's uppercase and lowercase (Aa, Bb, Cc) - please see your child's ABC writing assessment that will be home this week. Also, practice writing your sight words of the week for the spelling test on Friday! 

Sharing: Sharing is the ONLY part of your homework that you will need to turn in. There is NO sharing this week. Next week, there will be a special Book Box Sharing. More information on this will be sent home and discussed at Back to School Night.
