- Reading: Assigned pages should be read by the student twice to himself and once to a grownup, for a total of three times
- Spelling: On the first night the list is assigned, the list should be copied and returned the next school day. For the next four school nights, the list should be studied either orally or in written form. This is preparation for the spelling test.
- Math: Fact families should be practiced each night either through flashcards or Live Mathletics. First grade should practice 0-8 families, while second grade should practice 0-12 families.
Homework will continue for the next few weeks. We still have four full weeks of learning before Christmas holidays begin. Please continue to help your child complete his/her homework each night. Your participation in your child’s education is an essential part of his/her continued success.
With four weeks of learning, we will also continue to have regular tests. Please click, read, print and post our November 26-30 weekly schedule.
