Weekly Homework Expectations

*I send a weekly homework sheet home with each student every Monday.  This will be in the back sleeve of their purple homework folder.  Please check it nightly for homework assignments and important news.

What can students expect to have in first grade for homework?

Each week students are encouraged to read each night for about 5-10 minutes.  This will help with reading fluency, accuracy of words, and comprehension of what is being read.  It is very helpful if you can have your child read the story from their reader each night.  Reading is a very important skill for first graders to master to be successful in future grades!

Students are also ecouraged to study spelling words each night.  We will take a practice test on Wednesday and the final test on Friday.

We will also have math homework some evenings.  This paper will be in the "return to school" side of the homework folder.
