Homework: March 7 - 11

March  7 - March 11

New Homework Expectations We will have new homework expectations for the rest of the year. We will not only be recording students that have turned in their "Turn-In Homework", but we will be checking Smarty Ants and DreamBox to make sure students are spending 10-15 minutes a day on each program. We will also be keeping track of students that bring book bags to school every day. Thank you for your continued support at home!
Check out Parent Square where you can find additional homework activities to download. 

Flashcards: Don't forget to make new flashcards for each sight word and letter team.  New words for this week are: OVER, UNDER, LEFT, RIGHT, PUT and the new letter team is: DGE - (sounding like "j" like in BADGE, LEDGE, and FRIDGE).

Phonemic Awareness:  Please work with your child on the following Phonemic Awareness skills - rhyming, blending, segmenting, syllables, and beginning/middle/ending sounds. Please see our Phonemic Awareness tab for ideas and tips. Please check your child's report card from first trimester and see the Foundational Skills areas where they may still need support. 

Reading: Play Smarty Ants for 10-15 minutes each night. In addition to Smarty Ants, we ask that you read your Book Bag every night. This includes: sight words and letter team RAN Boards, fluency passage, any paper books, and library book.

You can also access Raz-kids Reading. This is a web sight reading program where your child can access digital books online. The books can be read and/or listened to and then your child can take a quiz to check for understanding. You will find the links to Smarty Ants and raz-kids below.

You can also download the Smarty Ants and raz-kids apps to your tablet for free!

Writing:  Practice writing EVERY day.  You can practice writing a 5 sentence Step up to Writing paragraph in your at-home journal.

Math: Play DreamBox for 10-15 minutes each night.

Continue to discuss ways to make 5 (and ways to make 10!), numbers in base ten (in the number 16, how many tens and how many ones?), addition and subtraction number problems and word problems, 2D and 3D shapes, and the Doubles Song. Count the money in your bank. Example: The number 14 has one ten and four ones. 10+4=14.

Turn-In Homework: Special Turn-In Assignment: Build a Leprechaun Trap.  This will be the Turn-In Homework portion of homework for this week and next week (week of March 7 AND the week of March 14.) Please note: the traps will be due in class no later than Wednesday, March 16th so we can do a special in class project with them.

Note: If you visit the following link (Sharing Paper), you'll find a great printable writing page with a spot for writing and for a picture! Feel free to print off a bunch of these pages to use for turn in writing homework each week :) The Sharing Paper link can also be found on the Fun Learning Links tab at the top of the page.
