Homework & Resources
Your child should spend at least 20 minutes each day reading. Any type of reading counts, including the anthology and RAZ Kids. We will not be collecting a written reading log, but do expect it to be a part of your daily routine with your child.
The key to success in school, from elementary school to college is READING. Help your child learn to love reading. Read to them, with them, or let them read to you. Talk about the book and ask questions. Remember that independent reading should be done at a level at which your child can read and understand with ease. Material that is too challenging (reader struggles with 3 or more words on a page) leads to a lack of fluency and problems with comprehension.
At the beginning of the week your child will receive a page with homework options for the week. The following Monday, students will return their initialed Learning Lotto tickets for each task they complete. Read on to see how it will work. You can also check out the attached file below on the reasoning behind our change in homework, as well as the letter that went home.
You will find a link at the bottom of this page with ideas for practicing spelling and sight words.
