Homework: September 16-20

Flashcards: Make flashcards for our new sight words(come, at, said), letter teams (CE and CI), and word family (IN - bin, fin, win). 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. 


Reading: We will begin book bags this week. Book bags will come home every day in your child's folder and need to be returned every day. Inside of your child's book bag will be several things we are working on in class. There may be a paper book from our reading group, a Decodable Book your child is working on, or a book chosen from our classroom library. There may also be a baggy of flashcards or 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. Our Friday ParentSquare video will give more detailed information about book bags as well so make sure to check that out!  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. 

Play 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. 

Read on 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

Writing:  Keep writing, writing, writing! Write your name (uppercase only at the beginning), write your sight words of the week, practice writing your ABCs, write short sentences, write in the tub with bathtub paint, write words in daddy's shaving cream all over the bathroom mirror - have fun and be creative! Remember, we learn to write by WRITING! 


Math: Count everyday! Practice writing numbers. Make number flashcards and identify numbers out of order. This week, we are working on ways to make 5. You can help at home by asking your child the ways to make 5 (3 and 2, 4 and 1, 5 and 0) or by asking them simple addition and subtraction stories with numbers within five. For example, "If I have three red apples and two green apples, how many is that altogether? OR "We have five people in our family but there are only 4 forks on the table for dinner, how many more forks do we need?"

Play Dreambox! My hope is that your child is logging onto Dreambox at home and playing for 10-15 minutes at least a few times a week. 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!
