*Homework packets are due every Friday. :-) Nightly Reading is considered homework too! Please make sure to initial Reading logs nightly so that I can keep track of your child's progress. If you would like to initial the homework packet before it is handed in that would be fantastic. This is a perfect way to show me that your have checked your child's work. Listed below are areas that will be covered in the homework packet:
* Theme; Social Studies, Science, Health
* Word Study
*Poetry Notebook-Since reading isn't mandatory over the weekend, often times I will send home your child's Poetry Notebook to read over the weekend for fun!!!!
The following areas will be covered in our Math program this First Trimester:
*Counting and Quantity
*Counting and Grouping
During the first Trimester of the school year our main focus revolves around Social Studies concepts and "Getting" to know each other. Listed below are the different area(s) that will be introduced to your child. Please remember to ask your child questions nightly on what they are learning throughout the school week. I usually ask my son and daughter what they liked (instead of learned) most about their school day and surprisingly I get a better response! :-) Don 't accept "I don't know" as an answer. Try to engage your child to be able to tell you at least one fact a day they have learned. Their comprehension skills will greatly increase because of this. Thank you for all your support!
