Homework: October 8-12


Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words (WHEN, HAVE, BE, AM, WHAT), letter teams (AW/AU and OO), and word family (OT). Study these flashcards (and those from previous weeks) every day.


Phonemic Awareness: Keep working with your child on skills such as blending, segmenting, rhyming, syllables, and sound switch. Our Friday video focus this week is on CVC words. A couple of tests your child took on reading and writing CVC words came home on Friday. Make sure to watch our Friday ParentSquare video - Mrs. Stanley and I will go over expectations and tips for reading and writing CVC words in kindergarten. 


Reading: Read books and review the sounds from your book bag! Book bags will come home every day and need to be returned every day. Inside of your child's book bag will be a book we are working on in class. This may be a paper book or it may be a book chosen from our classroom library. There may also be a page with letters and sounds that your child is still working on. Please have your child read these books (and pages) to you every day.  Continue to read the little paper books that come home to live in your book box at home. Continue to read TO your child every night, having conversations about the stories you are reading. Continue to log onto Smarty Ants for 10-15 at least a few times a week. 

You can find the link for Smarty Ants on the right side tab of our website. Our class username is: JCBESS@INLANDLEADERS.COM and our password is: READ.


Writing: Our September journals were sent home last week. Attached to that journal was a list of our writing goals and the writing goal that your child is currently working on. Please help your child to work on his or her writing goal each day. 


Math: Continue to play Dreambox for 10-15 minutes each night. Continue to count to 30 (or 50 or 100!) every day, practice number flashcards out of order, practice writing your numbers to 20 or higher, practice identifying shapes and drawing shapes. Remember to also go over our "Daily Math" practice pages that we do every morning in class - take a moment to go over these practice pages to see if there is anything specific your child needs to work on. 

Our school code for Dreambox is X2we/inlandlcs


QR Codes: Download and print those QR Codes each week from ParentSquare and have your child work on those at home!
