Instead of doing a reading log, we will be sending home comprehension pages. These may count towards nightly reading requirements. Please have students read the passage and answer in complete sentences. A book review will also take the place of a reading log this week. Children should choose 1 book for this assignment. Students should be reading 15 minutes per night. The reading alone helps improve your child's reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary. Please make this a priority.
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. Continue to review prior facts your students have mastered to ensure retention. Students will need to know addition and subtraction facts by the end of first grade.
