Please check your child's folder every day for imporant handouts and daily homework. On Monday through Thursday, your child will have a language arts page and a mathematics page. Homework should be kept in their blue folders and returned the next day. On days where your child does not have a language arts page, please read the book that is sent home with your child to practice their reading fluency and sight words. Sight words will be sent home as new ones are taught on Fridays. Thank you for your help, and please email me if you have any questions!
In addition to homework, please read, read, read with your child every day! This will help introduce concepts of print with your child as well as create a thirst and love for reading with your child that will follow them throughout their lives! Please read at least one book a day, or have your child read you one book a day. Encourage your child to look at the pictures to tell more about the story, and try to be word detectives to find words in books that your student has learned. Thank you for all of your help and support in this!
R.E.D. (Read Every Day) Folder
Beginning March 5th, your child will bring home a R.E.D. folder. This is in addition to daily homework. R.E.D. folders will go home every Tuesday and Thursday. Please have your child read the book in the folder to an adult and ask your child questions from the list provided. Please return the book and folder to school the next day. This helps build confidence, fluency, and reading comprehension.
