The first grade team will be sending home the following assignments:
- Daily reading – Children are expected to read 20-30 min. nightly. Your child should spend the first 10-15 min. reading to you, with the remaining time left for you to enjoy books together. Don’t forget about the poems that come home daily! Leveled books will be sent home, and those need to be returned the following day.
- Math games will occasionally be sent home for homework.
- An occasional family project through the school year such as the “All About Me” bag.
Our team believes that reading each night is the most important activity your child can participate in. Research shows that homework does not benefit young children as far as school achievement or test scores. Homework should be for enrichment, and should be fun for you and your child!
