Homework: February 3-7

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (QUESTION, WRITE, WITH, SAW, FROM), and letter teams (QU and WR). 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:  We are learning all about our country and our state this week. We will discuss where we live and our many national and state symbols. We will have TWO things to do for homework this week. Our first sharing project is a little book called "Me on the Map". It is meant to teach your child where he or she lives from the big picture (North America) to the small (your street address). "Me on the Map" iwll come home on Monday - please fill it out together and return it Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of this week for your child to share. The second piece of sharing this week is to write one sentence about a National Symbol we are learning about, and one sentence about a state symbol we are learning about. These two sentences are due by Thursday.

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.
