New Homework:

*Our new homework schedule begins on Tuesday! In the Home section of the folder, you have letters that explain the procedures for the Math calendar and sight words. In addition, you will find the October Math Calendar and our 10 sight words on card stock. Letter tracing pages will be sent home on Tuesday.

Our new procedure will be:

1. Two letters pages per week (Monday and Wednesday during Full Weeks)

2. Sight word practice (Tuesday and Thursday during Full Weeks)

3. Math Calendar daily activities

Since we do not have a full week next week, I will introduce the alphabet letters on Tuesday (I) and Wednesday (N). Please make sure students complete corresponding homework pages after I have introduced the letters at school. Sight words can be practiced on Thursday!

Please contact me if you have any questions about our new homework procedures.

Thanks so much for your help at home! :)
