Homework

You will find your child's Homework in the right pocket of your child's Red take home Folder. We have written homework Monday-Thursday nights. In addition, each week the children must complete their Spelling Homework on the Spelling City Website in order to be prepared for the weekly Spelling Tests each Friday, unless otherwise noted. Lastly, the children must be Reading a minimum of twenty minutes each night, as well as going over their words to know Flashcards.

You will notice the children take their pencil cases home each Friday, this is so the children can start each Monday with a minimum of 12 sharpened pencils. Thank you for helping your child to sharpen their pencils each weekend, it may sound like a little thing but it is appreciated !

   Please be sure to send a small nutritious snack and water with your child each day. It is preferable that the children bring in a environment friendly refillable water bottle if possible. Please let me know if your child has any allergies.


You may contact me via email or a note in your child's folder. My email address is gverso7172@spssmith.org.
Please DO NOT email during the school day regarding a change in how your child is to travel home at the end of the day. If a
change occurs during the day, you must phone the main office and they will relay a message to me. I am not always able to go online during the day to view and respond to messages.

Spelling Words
(*12 Words starting this week )
so, go, no, joke, poke, bone, home, rope, stove, chose, wrote, hole
 Spelling homework will be done via the Spelling City website. Information was sent home explaining all about what is to be done each week. Spelling words and homework are assigned each week, unless otherwise noted here on the Website or on the letter I send home each Friday. If the students do not complete their Spelling Homework, it will likely affect the children's Spelling Test grades and will definitely affect their Homework Grade on their Report Card.  
Each child's Login information for Spelling City was sent home prior to the first week of Spelling Homework. Please be sure your children complete all their Spelling City assignments, as well as study for their Spelling Test each week.

MATH
Please practice counting by 2's, 5's and 10's with your child as well as doing flashcards to learn their Math facts up to 20. Doing this will make your child more fluent in Math and make everything we are learning go much easier for them. This can be done anywhere, in a car, while waiting in a line, etc. Trust me, it will be time well spent. There are web sites with flash cards as well, since the kids like doing things online. Fact Monster is a good one !!
