Homework

Homework folders go home every Monday and should be returned on Friday. Included in the folder will be a fluency passage, sight words, nonsense words, a math worksheet, and a checklist for your signature. Please contact me if you have any questions!


Please try and read with your child for at least 15 minutes each night. That may include reading aloud to each other, retelling the story, or taking a picture walk (telling a story by looking at the pictures). Don't forget to utilize IStation. This is a wonderful program and these minutes will count towards your reading homework. If you're having trouble logging in, please let me know!
