Read for 15 minutes. (20 minutes if you're an "Older")
Bring your book AND your homework folder back tomorrow.
Students will begin bringing their "take home" envelope home every night. We have a white basket marked "Homework" on the shelf by the door where students will put their homework envelope in the morning. Please check the envelope each night for papers, books, or homework. Please know that there may occasionally be an empty folder - but establishing the routine of bringing it home and returning it the next day is my goal.
To that end, students will begin to bring home books each day to read. If you have a great book going at home already, by all means, let me know:)
If your child is a "younger learner", then 15 minutes a night would be appropriate, and 20 minutes for the "olders"!
Reading should be meaningful and fun (setting those patterns of reading for pleasure), and fluency with their math facts gives children confidence and problem solving abilities as the math becomes more challenging. If any homework difficulties occur, let me know:)
Thank you, Kathy
