Homework:November 28-December 2

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (AS, NO, KNOW, ABOUT, BY), and letter teams (KN and EW). Study flashcards every day.

Phonemic Awareness: Please work with your child on the following Phonemic Awareness skills - rhyming, blending, segmenting, syllables, and beginning/middle/ending sounds. 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. Read on RAZ-Kids. Read books from your book bag! Read your fluency passage 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: Practice writing every day! Our expectation at this point of the year is for students to write three sentences every day! Please make sure your three sentences are on the same topic with details, focusing on neatness, punctuation, and capitalization as we discussed at conferences.


Math: Play Dreambox for 10-15 minutes each night. Continue to practice counting, identify numbers out of order (make number flashcards!), practice number writing, practice drawing shapes, identifying shapes, or even creating shapes out of play-dough and sticks. Please check your child's report card from first trimester and see the Counting and Cardinality and Geometry areas where they may still need support.  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. 


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


Turn-In Homework: Our turn-in homework will be to write three or more sentences, instead of just one. At this point of the year, please have your child write the sentences instead of dictating it for them. This week, please write three sentences about what you did over break. We are practicing writing a topic sentence then details to go with it. For example, "I had a great Thanksgiving break. First, I went to the Grand Canyon. Next, I had a Thanksgiving feast with my family. Last, I went on lots of hikes with my family." Draw a picture to go with your sentences. Here is a link to our Sharing Paper
