hmwrk_dad_and_kid.jpgHomework packets are sent home each Monday and are due back on Friday morning. 

Homework is a chance for students to practice independently the skills they have learned in class.

Students need to practice reading aloud to improve their fluency.  Please time your student as they read the passage in their homework packet out loud to you.  Write their score on the front cover where it says wpm.

Please check your students homework and be sure that they are reading for a minimum of twenty minutes each night.  The time spent reading should increase throughout the year until they are reading for at least an hour. 

Students who do not turn in homework will miss out on fun activities. mom_hmwrk.jpg

Your child needs your support for learning at home! Here are some ideas for ways to help your child:

Please be sure you are monitoring your child's homework each night.

You can help your child do their one minute read aloud timings.

20-30 minutes of reading time can be done with you reading to your child or your child reading to you.

Students need to complete and turn in their homework on Fridays.


Reading Timings:
In the WPM section, you need to time the student for one minute as they read the passage outloud. This
improves student's reading fluency.

Reading Log:
Students should also read for 30 minutes each night. They can read on their own or with you. They should complete the reading log to tell me about what they read.

If you have questions, please call or email me.
