First-grade homework is a meaningful extension of the day's lesson. It is sent home to reinforce skills learned that day. Homework must be completed each night and turned in the following morning. Each night students will be assigned one reading assignment and one math assignment. Students should also complete their reading log each night.
Students will receive a demerit for missed homework.
Please check here weekly to find your students homework!

Please remember to also check your students grey test folder that goes home once a week. Make sure that you sign and review the test with your student and return it to school the next day. Do not remove any tests from the folder.
Reading: When students are reading at home please continue to talk about ALL the different comprehension skills (setting, characters, beginning, middle, and end, main idea, visualizing, author's purpose, and sequencing events). We will continue to review these throughout the year. It is essential that they understand what these words mean and how to respond when asked about them.
Math: Continue to practice math facts (addition and subtraction).
Fundations: We are starting unit 7. Please take a look at the unit 7 resource below to help reinforce what is being taught in the classroom. Feel free to use any of the resources to support your child with the skills we will be working on in the classroom.
