Due: Friday, March 2
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: Complete Home Sweet Home fact family page and Ready, Set, Count! Please have your child write the answer ("difference") for the subtraction problems and the ("sum") for the addition 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.
PRESIDENT'S DAY: Complete Map of Washington, D.C. and The Constitution.
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.
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 March Report Card is 30/30 (sums 1-9) 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!
