September 28th - Oct. 2nd

Monday through Thursday

Spelling - Here are some new ideas for practicing spelling. Study nightly. Spelling lists are located in Aces Folders

Reading Fluency Pieces and Classroom Books

Due to the previous short week students will continue practicing the same One Breath Boxes. I am sending home a new copy in case you have lost yours. Take five minutes each day or night and practice. There are many other ways you can practice sight words with your child that can make practicing more fun and enjoyable for everyone involved. See the link down at the bottom of the page! I will check their words on Thursday and Friday. Students will not do the breath boxes when being checked.

On Tuesdays the students bring home a reading piece for fluency. Please practice daily and keep the reading piece til Friday. Practice for at least 5 minutes a night. I will listen to the students read on Friday. I will also send home short reads to practice for the next day. Practice these and return to school for a one minute fluency check.

Reading aloud to your child is lots of fun and very important in the development of reading and fostering love for reading.

Students are welcome to bring home my class library books.

Adding in a little more homework with math!

Practicing math facts to sums of ten through good old fashioned flash cards can be a quick and easy add on. Spend five minutes or less flipping through a stack of flash cards anytime and almost anywhere. Put a stack in your purse, van, backpack, diaper bags and practice as often as possible
