Homework: September 16-20

Please remember the following are HOMEWORK TIPS. We would like you to meet your child where he or she is at. 

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (YOU, AND, IT, FRIEND), letter teams (WH), and word family (AT - bat, sat, cat, mat, fat). Study these flashcards (and those from previous weeks) every day. Visit our Sight Words tab for more flashcard ideas.

Phonemic Awareness:  Phonemic awareness is understanding sounds in words, rhyming, syllables, etc.  Strong phonemic awareness is important to early reading skills.  A great way to practice phonemic awareness is to play word/sound games with your child. Please see the Phonemic Awareness tab for ideas and tips on working with your child on these skills.
Rhyming
Beginning/Middle/Ending Sounds
Syllables
Blending
Segmenting

Reading: Read, read, read! Read books that have come home, read books from your book box, read on RAZ-Kids, read on We Give Books, and read to your child!

Math: VISIT OUR COMMON CORE STANDARDS TAB TO SEE WHAT OTHER MATH STANDARDS YOU CAN WORK ON WITH YOUR CHILD! Some things we are practicing in class are: Counting 1-30, Counting up starting at a number other than one, number flashcards, identifying numbers out of order, making patterns, sorting objects by color, shape and kind, number writing, drawing shapes, days of the week, months of the year, identifying shapes and coins. 

Writing: Practice writing sentences with your child. Give your child a sentence to write with sight words in it and help him or her to start with an uppercase, use fingerspaces, sound out words we do not know how to spell, and end with a period. {Examples: Look at this dog. We can see a rat. I like the book.} This will really help with our journal writing and our dictation test on Fridays.

Sharing: Write one sentence about the life cycle of an apple (from seed to tree to blossom to apple). Draw a picture to go with your sentence. Make sure you practice reading your sentence at home so you are prepared to read in front of the class. Sharing is due any day this week. Make sure you practice reading your sentence at home so you are prepared to read in front of the class. Sharing is due Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Please do not turn in on Fridays. Thank you.
