Homework Begins!
It is February and we are preparing students for the rigorous changes that will occur next year in first grade. Students are beginning this transition by starting weekly homework. Simply choose three activities or more to complete each week, color in the respective box, and return the following Sunday.
Read Every Day (R.E.D) Folders
R.E.D. folders contain books that students are able to read or interested in reading on their own. Students went book shopping in class as selected books that appealed to them.
Students should practice reading on their own each night, independently. I would encourage you to set a specific time for them to read each night so they get into the habit.
An ideal schedule for students would be
4:45 pm- Eat a snack, drink water, use the restroom.
5:00 pm – Complete one Bingo Homework Box for 6 minutes (the number of minutes should correspond to their age.)
5:10 pm- Read one book independently.
5:15pm – Read the same book to a parent or guardian
I hope you have an excellent day,
