Math: Monday,Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Read: 20 minutes per night or more
Record all the minutes your child reads. You can count all minutes spent reading aloud, silent reading,or shared reading when your child is listening. My goal is to create a love of literature and reading!

Spelling/Vocabulary lists come home Friday.
Spelling test first thing Friday morning.
Procedure: I say the definition and students write the correct word, spelled correctly.
Your child may bring home extra Math or other work that he or she didn't have time to finish. If your child is absent I will save work in a laminated "Homework envelope" containing all the missed work. Please send it back to school within a day or two. If you are going on vacation, please notify the office and I can send predictable work home with your child.
