Any time your child spends reading at home is extremely valuable. I would
recommend that your child reads at least 20 minutes a night. You can help by
making sure your child is reading a book at his or her level. We spend time
at school learning how to pick "good-fit books". If a book seems too
difficult or too easy, encourage your child to choose another book. When
possible, ask him/her to retell the story to you. This helps to build
I cannot stress enough the importance of practicing multiplication facts each
night with your child. He/she should be bringing home flash cards based
on which facts he/she is studying at school. Mastery of multiplication
facts will greatly facilitate your child's success with other math concepts
throughout the year. When your child has mastered multiplication facts,
he/she should move on to division facts.
Students may also receive additional assignments as well.
Please look over and sign your child's assignment planner nightly for all
homework assignments, announcements, due dates, etc.
