Nightly Homework: Students always have a set of spelling words to be studying. Refer your child's student planner for their word list. Spelling tests are given weekly. It is crucial that students are able to read their sight words automatically in order to read fluently. I asked that students read a book or story Monday through Thursday and one day during their weekend break. Please remember to sign your child's reading log with the title of the story. Students will be required to read for 20 minutes daily in January As long as your child meets their goal at the end of the month they will be receiving a coupon for a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! Be sure to choose reading material at your child's reading level and remember that students always have the opportunity to check out books in our classroom in case you are limited to books at home. Please follow your child's homework weekly calendar.  Any writing assignments should be written in your child's composition journal which I will collect on Fridays and hand out on Mondays. Lastly, check homework binders for math worksheets or notes.
