Homework: October 24-28

Please take a moment to read each section of homework. I understand this can be very overwhelming. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.


Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (BOY, GIRL, HAS, NICE, WANT), letter teams (OY and OI), and word family (OP - hop, cop, top, etc)Study flashcards every day.


Phonemic Awareness: Your child's Foundational Skills goal sheet came home a couple of weeks ago with his or her highlighted goals. Please refer to this sheet and work with your child on these skills that he or she still needs to master (blending, segmenting, rhyming, syllables, add/change/delete a sound, etc.) Please see our Phonemic Awareness tab for ideas and tips. 


Reading: Play Smarty Ants for 10-15 minutes each night. Read on RAZ-Kids. Read books from your Book Bag! Read books from your at-home book box! Read to your child every day and have your child read to you every day. Find sight words and letter teams in books, in the car as you are driving - just READ, READ, READ! 

Writing: Write every day in your at-home journal. Practice proper penmanship using the lines to help you. Practice writing your sight words of the week. Practice using an uppercase only at the beginning. Some students should now be working on writing one to three sentences on the same topic. Some students are still practicing writing their names, letters, and sight words. 


Math: Play Dreambox for 10-15 minutes each night. Work on your child's Counting and Geometry goals from their goal sheets. Keep going over those Daily Math worksheets that go home each day to see if your child needs help with a particular skill. Remember to check the back to see our Math Talk of the day. Count everything! Practice drawing shapes! Tell your child addition and subtraction math stories and have them tell you how they got their answer. 


QR Codes: Download and print the QR Code practice pages on ParentSquare. Work on these pages together. 


Turn-In Homework: This week, we are learning all about pumpkins. Write one sentence about the life cycle of a pumpkin. Draw a picture to go with your sentence. Here is a link to our Sharing Paper
