General Homework Information
The purpose of homework in first grade is to review and practice skills. Children will not need to spend a great deal of time at home completing these assignments.
Math: Math homework will be sent home each day the lesson is completed. Please return the homework the day after it is assigned. These activities are a means of reinforcement and practice of the lesson that was taught that day.
Sight Words: Starting in October your child will be assigned sight words each week. These sight words are taken from our Fundations phonics program. The goal is for your child to recognize, read, and spell the words correctly. We will practice these words in school as well. Reading and spelling these sight words should eventually become automatic for the students. The key is to practice, practice, and practice!
Reading and sight word practice: A reading log and sight word practice worksheet will be sent home on Mondays and both are due on Friday. Please read to or have your child read to you 10 to 15 minutes each day.
