Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (WOULD, COULD, SHOULD, WALK, TALK), and letter teams (ANG and ANK). 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. Reinforce addition and subtraction math facts through 5. Count the money in your "bank" each day. Tell addition and subtraction word problems to your children and have them explain to you how they got the answer. 

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: For sharing this week, please write TWO or more sentences about ways you can show boldness. Sharing is due BY THURSDAY.  Please make sure your child is responsible for his/her own writing as we are no longer accepting dictated sentences for sharing homework.  Please remember that sharing is a part of our curriculum and 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.
