Addition and Subtraction Review
*Addition and subtraction facts to 20 need to be memorized, so please continue to practice these skills at home! A math fact practice will be done every Friday. A 100% in the time given will earn students 10 bonus happy sticks. For more information check out the "homework" section on this page*
Word Patterns: inflectional ending -ed
rained, asked, cleaned, bumped, loaded, wanted, watched, picked, lived, walked
Challenge Words: research, multiplication, evidence,
economics: personal financial literacy
The weekly homework is passed out on Mondays and due on Friday morning.
A completion grade will be given for every subject. 10 points will be deducted for every day that homework is late. A 0 will be given after the third day it is late.
Please make sure you have checked over your child's homework and allowed him/her to make corrections before it is turned in on Friday.
Students should be reading every night and recording the title of the book read on the homework recording sheet. 20 minutes of reading each night is recommended. Please make sure your child records the title themselves.
Studying math facts should be done nightly, as students are expected to memorize all addition and subtraction facts to 20. Math facts practice could be about 5 to 10 minutes and includes anything that requires the student to work on math facts. Some examples include:
-store bought flashcards
-printed math facts worksheets
-math facts games
-parent verbally calls out a fact and student answers
-playing "war" with a deck of cards (whoever calls out the sum or difference first keeps the
-rolling two dice and finding the sum or difference
-apps or online games
Please help your child practice his/her word study words each week. There will be a word study quiz every Friday for a grade. The Word Study Check scores will average together as a grade at Progress Report and Report Card time. Those who miss 4 or more words on their word study check will need to practice the words during Fun Friday time.
However, students who spell all five Challenge Words correctly will be rewarded with 10 happy sticks!
Homework Pass: When a student has earned a no homework pass, please staple the pass to the homework and turn it in on Friday. Keep in mind that students will still need to read every night and word study words will still need to be studied, as there will still be a Friday word study check.
