*Scroll down for First Grade homework!
Due: Friday, May 5, 2017
LANGUAGE: The phonics portion of the homework now will vary depending on your child's reading level. Most directions are written on the page or the students have already been exposed to the packet and directions in class. If you have any questions, please contact me. Please help your child do their neatest handwriting and coloring on all phonics pages. Please review the letter formation page attached to your "Open House" packet if you have letter formation questions or view correct letter formation on the school's website.
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS: Complete page 15. Have your student read each direction or you may read them each direction and have them complete each task. Please put an X in the box after each direction has been followed.
MATH: Please complete each page focusing on coins carefully. The directions are given at the bottom of the page. Please practice counting and identifying numbers to 100.
MATH FACTS: Please cut them apart and practice them daily until they are mastered.
READING LOG: Read and record at least 100 pages on your child’s reading log. If your child is not reading and logging at least 100 pages weekly and turning in a reading log every Friday, they will not be eligible to attend the reading celebrations at the end of each trimester.
FLASH CARDS: Please practice the letter and word flash cards that were sent home for 10 minutes per night. Students should practice recognizing the uppercase letter name, the lowercase letter name, the letter sound, and the sight words. Depending on your student's reading group you may receive a new packet of sight word flashcards. Please follow the attached directions. If you are unsure of how the sound should be said, please visit our website at libertysd.org, find Melissa Sapiane, and click on Alphafriends. Please cut the flash cards out. Practice a few at a time until your child has mastered them.
EXTRA HOMEWORK: Each month you will receive a activity calendar. This is optional homework. I often receive requests for additional homework. This calendar is a way for you and your child to do some at home activities and to share time together. If you choose to complete this homework, please turn in your calendar on the last Friday of the month.
Thank you, Mrs. Sapiane and Mrs. Bianchini
