MondayRead Classroom Library BookEvery Monday your child will be bringing home a book to read from our classroom library. When your son/daughter has read the book to you, please sign his/her homework planner for that Monday’s date. Books should be returned on Tuesday.
At times a book may be lengthy, please share the reading with your child. You may read a page or two and they would read a page. We are seeing so much improvement thanks to your continued support.TuesdayReading AssignmentThe assignment varies between reading the story from your child's reader or studying vocabulary words from the stories that we have read.When reading with your child you may also share the reading assignment, by reading a page and your child reading a page.Vocabulary words have already been taught during reading instruction. Your child should practice reading the words with automaticity (without sounding each word out). Sounding out words is effective when learning the words, but once known your child should not hesitate when reading them. Definitions may also be discussed.Vocabulary lists can be accessed from this website.WednesdaySpelling HomeworkPractice for the Test on ThursdayandVocabulary PracticeA worksheet will be sent home for your child to copy the words twice.
