Homework: January 13-17

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (OF, BACK, PLEASE, SAY, SAYS), and letter team (CK). Study flashcards every day.

Phonemic Awareness:  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 books from your book bag, read your fluency, read from your Book Box at home, read on RAZ-Kids, read on We Give Books. We want to give you plenty of resources and opportunities to READ, READ, READ.

Math: Practice the “Doubles Song” on the back of the homework folder.  We will be have a “Doubles Contest” in class in the upcoming weeks.  Please help your child memorize the doubles math facts. You can also reinforce addition and subtraction math facts through 5 and practice counting the money in your "bank" each day.

Writing: Write EVERY SINGLE DAY in your At-Home Journal. Practice writing your sight words and write stories with a topic sentence and three sentences on that topic.

Sharing: We have a very special sharing homework this week. Please write two or three sentences about your dreams for the future and possibly how ILCS has influenced those dreams. Some examples include: "I want to be a nurse because ILCS has helped me to care for people" or "I want to be President of the United States because ILCS has taught me to be a leader". There will be two friends (one boy and one girl) from each grade level chosen to read this "Dreams Sharing" at our Gala!!  Remember that sharing for our second trimester will consist of TWO or more sentences and a picture. Starting this week, students that do not turn in sharing will owe Mrs. Bess one cent AND will have to complete that sharing homework during recess on Fridays. 


Type To Learn: Please complete ONE LESSON a week. Of course you may do more, but the school suggests that each student complete one (or two!) lessons per week in order to complete 50 lessons by the end of the school year.
