The amount of homework that your child receives will be determined during the Individual Learning Plan (ILP) meeting in October. You will be asked to choose from three homework levels:
Level A: Read 10 minutes (Read to Self, Read to Parent, Parent Read to Child) and math calendar.
Level B: Read 10 minutes, math calendar, online practice skills.
Level C: Read 10 minutes, math calendar, online practice skills, writing practice.
At San Tan, we offer families a choice of homework load to match the individual needs of the family. During the second week of August, I will be assigning the class the middle level, from which your family can decide if it is too much or too little homework.
Some important things that you can work on continuously include:
· practicing sight words (fry_first_100)
· completing math classwork, helping in the kitchen, practicing math facts, etc…
· work on writing- allow students to draw, label, create, and have fun writing while at the same time working on strengthening their writing stamina
· READING, READING, and MORE READING!
We are setting up good study habits for future classes. A strong recommendation would be to have a set area where pencils, crayons, erasers, and highlighters are readily available. This area can be a desk in a quiet spot in the house, or a quiet area where your child will not be disturbed. Some websites below are games that can be played to reiterate concepts learned in class!
