HOMEWORK:
Monday
Read a book to your child.  Have them identify the parts of the book (front, back, spine, pictures, words, and even letters as they're taught).  Ask: Where do I start reading?  What direction do I read from there?  What do you think will happen next? Tell me what happened in this story.  (Retelling a story is an important skill to master for future readers and writers).  As we get into sight words the second semester, you may want your child to identify these words in the books you read to them.

Have your child identify all the uppercase letters.  Have your child identify the letter sounds (only if they have mastered letter identification).  If your child has mastered both letters and sounds, move on to sight words.

In folders,  I may send homework pertaining to a current theme and/or a letter/number of the week. Unfinished work may also be sent home to complete.  Most of these are not expected to be sent back to school.  These pages are to be used as practice and review. They are also meant to keep the parent informed of what is being taught.  Please make sure to check your child's folder daily and return all Behavior Charts after you have reviewed them so I can keep them for my records.  You may request copies of these charts at the end of the school year.



Tuesday
Read a book to your child.  (see Monday)  Have your child write their name using a capital letter followed by all lowercase letters.  If your child has mastered their first name, have them begin to practice their last name again using a capital letter followed by lowercase letters.



Wednesday
Read a book to you child.  (see Monday)  Have your child identify all the lowercase letters.  Have your child identify letter sounds (only if they have mastered letter identification).  If your child has mastered both letters and sounds, move on to sight words.



Thursday
Read a book to your child.  (see Monday)  Have your child write their name using a capital letter followed by all lowercase letters.  If your child has mastered their first name, have them begin to practice their last name again using a capital letter followed by lowercase letters.



Friday
Review the skills that your child still needs to practice and enjoy the weekend!
