Homework: September 9-13

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 (LOOK, HERE, THIS), letter teams (CH and OO), and word family (AM - ram, Sam, Pam, yam). 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: Practice counting 1-30 or higher, count on starting at a number other than one, identify numbers out of order, study number flashcards, number writing practice, sort items by color and size, practice drawing shapes, start sorting and counting coins at home. VISIT OUR COMMON CORE STANDARDS TAB TO SEE WHAT OTHER MATH STANDARDS YOU CAN WORK ON WITH YOUR CHILD!

Writing: Write every day in your at-home journal. Practice writing your name with an uppercase only at the beginning. Practice writing ABC's uppercase and lowercase (Aa, Bb, Cc). Also practice writing your sight words of the week and sight word dictation sentences for our spelling test on Friday.

Sharing: Oh, no! Only 12 friends turned in their sharing homework this week!!!! This is a big part of our curriculum and the only homework you need to turn in. I do record who turns in sharing for student's homework grades. This week, we are discussing our leadership theme - diligence. Please write one sentence about how you can be diligent at home or at school. 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 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Please do not turn in on Fridays. Thank you.
