Homework will be an important part of your childs school experience. We recommend you have a designated area for your child to complete homework. The area should have all the supplies needed to successfully complete assignments: glue/glue sticks, scissors, crayons/colored pencils,and pencils are all items your child might need. Your child will generally have the following types of homework: READ ALOUDS - A Read Aloud form goes home at the beginning of every month and is due back on the last school day of each month. Research shows that young children who read, or are read to, regularly become better readers. Daily reading for 15 to 20 minutes is a part of your child's homework. Books read are recorded on the read aloud sheet. If your child has a favorite book that you read over and over, you can write it down each time (or next to the title keep tally marks for each reading). Before returning the read aloud your child should complete the "Book Report" on the back of the Read Aloud sheet. WEEKLY HOMEWORK - Alphabet homework goes home on Mondays and is to be returned to school by Friday. Homework is checked for completion and direction following and recorded for report cards. DAILY READING HOMEWORK - A half sheet will come home most days with your child. They are to read each story to you two times and each word list once. You then initial the bottom of the homework amd return it to school the next day. This is new to our reading curriculum this year. It reinforces the daily small group lessons and are individualized to your child SIGHT WORDS - Our reading program has 32 sight words introduced through out the year. These are "tricky" words that Kindergarteners have trouble sounding out so need to memorize them. Writing them on index cards and practicing them at home gives your child that extra help they need. To start this practice pick four or five words. Practice those until your child is proficient at them adding a few more as words are mastered. If your child can easily read all 32 of these words let me know and I will send you home a list with more high frequency words to practice. Our 32 sight words are: I I'm said the was is his look with as has hasn't a isn't wasn't want should would could couldn't wouldn't shouldn't to into do work are what where there who little
