  • ***Students will turn in all homework on Friday morning, which will include all math pages from the week, as well as a practice Spelling Test stapled to the front.  Please make sure names are on the homework.

    For both 1st and 2nd Grades, homework folders will come home nightly Monday-Thursday and should be returned to school each day.  Leveled Readers will come home Monday and Tuesday, and should be read by student to parent that night and returned to school the next day.  On Wednesdays, students may bring home a larger book (Readers Writers Workshop and/or Literature Anthology), with a story as reading homework.  Reading homework on Thursdays will be the library book your child selected. 

     Monday-Thursday homework will include:

    *15-20 minutes per day of students reading to parents from leveled books, anthologies, and/or home library if a school book is not sent home, and a little sight word practice (High Frequency Words)

    *3 Spelling practice activities per week, one of which should be a practice test done on Thursday.
