Each week the purple homework folder will come home on Monday and should be returned on Friday. Homework every week will include the following:
Reading- 100 book challenge- Read books with or to your parents and record the books you read on the pages in this folder that say “book Title”. Try to read for at least 15-20 minutes each night. Students will receive a certificate for every 10 books they read or read with parents.
Math/Writing/Art/Science/Social Studies- Math will usually include a concept we are working on in class or math fact practice. If this work is too easy or too difficult for your child, feel free to modify the work or supplement with alternative math work. We will focus on opinion writing in the next couple months. Remember to put in capital letters, spaces between words, a period at the end, and make sure your writing looks neat. You might be asked to include a drawing with your writing. Color your drawing if you can. Science or Social Studies work might include a writing activity that focuses on the science/social studies theme we are learning about.
Sight Word Work- Sight word work includes cutting out sight word flash cards and practicing to read and write these words as well as lightning practice- reading sight words quickly to increase reading fluency.
**If you need more time, folders may be kept over the weekend and returned on Monday. If your family is having a hectic, busy week, don’t worry about skipping some or all the homework for the week. Homework should be meaningful, not stressful.
