We will talk more about homework at Open House. For now, please be advised that a list of sight words and a set of quarter one flash cards will be coming home today in your child's folder. Your child should practice these words every night. Many of these words cannot be stretched (you cannot sound them out). Please reinforce that these are words we must remember to become better readers!
