Welcome

Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and we are committed to do our best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this year.  We have high academic and behavioral expectations for our students. However, we cannot do this without the help of you, the parents.  Thank you for being our partners in the learning process.

 

Homework

The best way to master a concept is to practice.  Students will get the opportunity to practice concepts they’ve learned during the school day at home each week.  Here is a quick peek of what homework will look like for the week.

Math:

  • When?  Daily
  • What?   Students will bring a math sheet home each night to complete and bring back to school the following day.  Homework will consist of concepts we have taught that day, as well as concepts from previous lessons. There will be a math homework letter from our curriculum coming home at the beginning of each unit to explain math homework in more detail. Look for the first letter the first week of school.

Spelling:

  • When?  Weekly
  • What?   Students will get a spelling list each week to practice for our test. The day of the post test will vary. Students will write the test date at the top of their spelling list so they know when to study. Each list will be given to the students on Day 1 of our reading curriculum and the test will be on Day 5.  The list will focus on the phonics skills we are learning each week.  If students demonstrate mastery of the spelling list on their pre-test (2 or less incorrect) they will be given an alternate list of 15 more challenging words that fit our phonics skill.  Our goal is for students to learn the skill beyond Friday’s test date, so we see correct use in their daily writing.
