What you need to know about Homework
Homework will go home every Friday and is due the following Friday. Students are given a hard copy of the homework before they leave school for the weekend. If they misplace it, there are many ways they can get another copy. Homework is always attached to these weekly newsletters. A digital copy is e-mailed home to the parents and put in the Google classroom homework folders of each subject. There is also a tub in each classroom that has extra homework papers in it.
It is the student's responsibility to get the homework they need if they are absent or misplace it. Failure to turn in homework will result in a loss of checkbook points and a working lunch.
Please check over your child's homework for accuracy and completion. You help and support is appreciated.
Science: In science ELM we will be researching our questions to prepare for our final Google presentation for 1st grade buddies. We have also learned our new resource log in for Math and Science using Think Central. Think Central has a copy of BOTH our math and science workbooks as well as numerous resources and links for learning. Please let your child show you as we used them today in class.
Writing: This week we are learning how to write an introduction that includes a hook. We will also be learning how to add details to our writing by using "Color It Up" strategies.
Reading: In reading we will be starting a class book club and practicing our inferencing and questioning skills.
