LANGUAGE: The phonics portion of the homework now will vary depending on your child's reading level. Most directions are written on the page.

Please review the letter formation page attached to your "Open House" packet if you have letter formation questions.

READING: In addition to reading the sight word readers, please read to your child at least 100 pages this week and record it on your reading log. Please tally the total number of pages at the end of the week.
FLASH CARDS: Please practice letter, sight word, and number flash cards. Please cut them out and practice them at least 10 minutes per night.
EXTRA HOMEWORK: Some parents and students were asking for additional homework, so here it is. I have sent home a monthly Activity Calendar. Complete the activities that interest you and your child. Fill out the form on the back and return it at the end of the month.

FIRST GRADE HOMEWORK
Due: Friday, March 16, 2018
LEPRECHAUN TRAPS: See the attached directions. Please turn in your student's trap on THURSDAY!
SPELLING: Complete the spelling practice pages. Please make sure that your student uses neat handwriting when completing these practice pages.
SPELLING TEST: Help your student learn how to spell the 10 spelling words correctly. A written spelling test will be given on Friday.
MATH: Please have your child write the answer ("difference") for the subtraction problems. Time your student for one minute to see how many problems they can correctly complete. After the minute is up have them draw a line and complete the rest of the problems. When they have completed the page, help them by double checking that they have written the correct answer for each problem.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY FUN: Help your student complete the St. Patrick's Day themed math and language arts pages. The directions are at the top of each page.
WORD FAMILY REVIEW: Have your student read short and long vowel word families nightly. They should be reading at least 5 families per night. After they read the word family, have an adult pick one word from each word family to spell.
SIGHT WORD FLASHCARD REVIEW: Please have your child continue to practice the sight word flashcards that were sent home last summer. They should practice 5 at a time. Once they have mastered those five add a few more. Please continue to review the ones your child has mastered. If you need another copy please contact me.
SOUND UNITS: Help your student practice saying each sound unit nightly. After they can say each sound correctly, you can help them to spell each sound unit. Please only practice spelling the stared sound units that were given to you at parent teacher conferences
MATH FACTS FLASHCARDS: Please spend 5-10 minutes daily practicing the Math Fact triangles. Remember to start with no more than 5 triangles. Once those are memorized you may add more triangles to the pile. Please remember to review the triangles that your student has already mastered to ensure that they are not forgotten. The benchmark for the June Report Card is 20/30 (sums 9-18) on both addition and subtraction.
READING LOG: Read and record at least 100 pages on your child’s reading log. Please record any books that were sent home for your child to read during the week. Your student should be reading the Scholastic Mini Books at least 3 times before sending them back to school. Please help your student build comprehension by asking them questions after they have read the story. Please remember that if your child is not reading at least 100 pages weekly and turning in their reading logs on time that they will not be eligible to attend our special reading awards. This includes movies, other fun awards and activities!
Thank you for your at home support!
