Words to Know!


*Read nightly to develop a love for reading. Read to your child, listen to him/her read, and provide a chance to just have some time alone with a good book! DON'T FORGET TO ASK YOUR CHILD WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE STORY! :) You can keep track of reading on the reading log

Homework will be an extension of what is learned in class, and will be communicated by me. The homework assignments will be meaningful, purposeful, and aligned to classwork. We believe that homework should be flexible in order to respond to the needs of the students. Therefore, you will not see the exact assignments on a weekly or regular basis. Some homework assignments will be communicated via email and classroom website :)
