This is the first week students will have homework in Reading, Word Study and Math. Please be sure to check purple folders daily and remove items in “Keep at Home”. This will help to insure that the correct papers are returning to school daily.
We will begin our word study groups this week. Students receive 2 copies of their word sorts each week. One copy stays in school and the other can stay at home. If you need additional copies, please let me know. Remember that we are on a 2 week rotation, so we will not be testing this Friday but next Friday.
We have practiced the homework assignments so students are familiar with the process and have examples in their word study journals. Please date each nights homework assignment. You can find explanations and examples in the this document. It is also available from the class website under Study Guides & Homework.
Ordinal numbers was our first math unit which we finish this week. Our next unit, Place Value reviews the place value concepts from first grade and adds the hundreds place to those concepts. Please review the study guides sent home for information related to concepts.
