Every Monday, your child will receive a homework packet. I have included a recommended schedule, but homework can be completed in any order. I suggest reading the Backpack Page every night to help improve fluency! Please continue reading 15 minutes every night with your child. The fluency page can count towards the 15 minute nightly reading requirement. Memory words (found at the bottom of this post) are high-frequency words that children are taught to recognize by sight. These words are either phonetically irregular and can't be decoded, or they contain letter sounds that haven't been taught yet. Practicing memory words on a regular basis can help improve your child's reading! Students will also have their first spelling test this Friday. Please select a spelling activity from the spelling menu to complete with your child each night (Monday-Wednesday). Thursday is designated as a night to study for the test. Homework packets are due Friday. Please attach spelling activities!
Memory words: I, a, the, for, you, like, to, of, no, was, put, said
Spelling words: big, dig, hop, mop, rug, tug, cat, flat, nest, best
Please check and sign your child's planner every night. This is a good habit to start now because it is a requirement in the upper grades. Thank you!
