Homework is assigned Monday-Thursday. Homework provides the opportunity for students to independently practice and apply the skills learned at school. The extra practice at home is necessary for students to succeed through the rigor of our 1st Grade Curriculum. Students learn 30 spelling words a week and also learn math at a 2nd Grade level.
- Monday: 10 Words
- Tuesday: 10 Words
- Wednesday: 10 Words
- Thursday: Review all 30 words for Friday's Spelling Test
- Students will need to bring their Pink and White Spalding Book to school everyday. Please do NOT have students write in these books at home. These books are only to be written in here at school. The Pink and White Spalding Book is basically a running record of our weekly spelling words. When we enter words into our books, we focus on syllabication, phoneme recognition, spelling rules, and handwriting. As students are writing their words for homework, their focus is to practice their words with that same mindset.
- Students are to complete the My Homework page from the My Math Lesson we learned in class that day. Please check over homework to ensure students are practicing their math skills correctly. There are online resources to assist through Infinite Campus. Please click on the link provided on my main page, 'My Math and Journeys Login Instructions', to access tutorials, videos, and an online student math book.
- Students should also read for 20 minutes. Please have students read aloud to or with you. Leveled readers will be provided. Please record story titles and minutes read on the provided green reading log.
