Homework: September 2-6

Flashcards: Please make flashcards for our sight words (LOOK, HERE, THIS), our letter team of the week (CH and OO) and our word family (AM - Pam, Sam, ram, etc.) Study these flashcards every day. Have your child read the word, spell the word, read the word. I would suggest making a little flashcard box that you can add to throughout the year and reading through those flashcards a few times a day. Make a game of it. Put the sight word CD on and sing and dance to the sight words. We will have a Reading Test on these sight words, letters and letter sounds, and letter teams each Friday. We will also have a Sentence Test on our sight words every Friday. A sentence test means we will be asking your child to write a sentence that we give them using our sight words of the week. We will not only be looking for correct spelling of our sight words, but also for an uppercase at the beginning, spaces between words, a proper punctuation at the end. An example of a sentence is, "We can see a man." It may be a good idea to have a practice Sentence Test with your child on Thursday night. 


Phonemic Awareness: Our Friday video this week features Mrs. Stanley and myself going over blending and segmenting. These are the beginning stages of being able to read and write and can be done before your child even knows letters or letter sounds. Please work on these skills this week. Check out our ParentSquare video for how to help your child! 


Reading: Reading at home is SO IMPORTANT! My hope is that you are reading TO your child every night and discussing the stories you read. When reading with your child, have them point out the front cover, back cover, spine, title, author, illustrator, and title page. My hope is that your child is also playing on Smarty Ants for 10-15 minutes at least a few times a week. Our class username is: JCBESS@INLANDLEADERS.COM and our password is: READ. Another part of reading homework can be RAZ-KIDS. You can also find the link for RAZ-KIDS on the right side tab of our website. The teacher username is: JBESS1 and your child's password is: ABC.On Friday, your child will be bringing home some of their little books we have been reading in class. These little books can live in your special book box that you made together. 


Writing: Practice writing your name. Practice writing ABCs (both uppercase and lowercase). Practice writing sight words of the week. Practice writing a short sentence. A good idea is to keep an at-home journal and just practice writing something every day. We learn to write by writing, writing, writing! 


Math: Practice counting 1-30 or higher. Make number flashcards and have your child identify numbers out of order. Practice number writing 0-30. Have your child identify shapes and practice drawing shapes or building shapes out of sticks. Review our "Daily Math" pages coming home. Have your child play Dreambox on your computer or tablet every day. A paper was sent home at Back to School Night with log-in instructions. You can also find the link for Dreambox on the right side tab of our website. Our school code is X2we/inlandlcs and our class code is 83093.

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