- Every night your child should read 30 minutes. Record this on his or her reading calendar. At the end of the month, your child will turn the calendar in for a reward. If your child has read every day for at least 5 minutes or read the total minutes listed for the month (900-930) he or she will take part in a recess/lunch celebration. This could be a movie, making a special treat, or making a hands on experiment.
- Monday through Thursday your child will have a math worksheet to complete as homework. This worksheet builds on what we learn at school and reinforces what your child is learning. If your child asks for help, ask them about strategies he or she has learned and help them figure out the answer for his or herself. If you ever have questions about strategies that we are using in class, feel free to email me.
- Your child should also be practicing his or her math facts. Often, this is included on the worksheet sent home for homework. Encourage your child to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division throughout the year. Check out the math tab for some games to practice these skills.
- For more detailed information and daily work, please be sure to check your child's communication notebook every night.
