Welcome back to school. I hope everyone enjoyed their March Break. It will be fondly remembered as our mini-summer. This is a regular five day week. Please read the March 26-30 schedule carefully for activities and tests specific to our class.
This week’s Family Circus cartoon reminds us of the importance of young children completing homework with the help of their parents. Reading homework is assigned four nights a week, while spelling homework is assigned once a week. Our procedure for reading homework is for the student to read the assigned pages twice to himself and once to an adult. This means that the assigned pages will be read three times at home. Please listen carefully, as your child practices reading fluency and accuracy with expression. Reading homework is essential for your child to continue to progress academically. Upon completion of assigned homework, parents are asked to sign their child’s agenda. Thank you for your continued help and support in this essential academic discipline.
