Please make sure to check and sign your child's planner and behavior chart each night. Both are a valuable tool to check for important notes and see how your child is doing in class. As always, please email me with any questions.
Fact Fluency practice will be sent home on a weekly basis. In order to be fluent in their addition facts, students should be able to do 20 problems in a minute. We will continue to practice in class, but practice outside the classroom is equally valuable, and will help your child master their facts more quickly.
Students should be reading 15 minutes per night and need to fill out the reading log at home using complete sentences. I can't stress enough how important this homework assignment is. The reading alone helps improve your child's reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary. Please make this a priority.
