Reading: Students are expected to read for at least 20 minutes each night and record on their reading log. Your child can read with you or a sibling. It would be helpful to ask your child about what they have read afterwards to check for understanding.
Math: Children should finish any incomplete math classwork that is sent home. They should also practice their addition and subtraction facts by using the counters, ten frame, and game ideas included in their math fluency bag. This math fluency bag will be updated monthly with new game ideas!
Phonics: Children should be studying their snap words daily to build fluency. Snap Word practice ideas are listed below!
As always, should you have any questions or concerns regarding homework, please feel free to contact me!
Snap Word Fluency Practice Ideas
SNAP WORD HUNT
Write each word on a sheet of paper such as a post-it or index card. Then hide the words throughout the house. Have your child then hunt for the words. Once they have found all of the words you have hidden, have your child read each word to you.
Set a timer and have your child read as many words they can in that given amount of time. Time your child every time they play this game so that they can see how they improve the more they practice.
SAY AND SPELL
Your child says the word and then spells it out loud while writing it down on paper. This is a great strategy to use when practicing snap words because, not only is it important for children to know how to say these words, but it is also important that they know how to spell them correctly.
SAY AND GIVE A SENTENCE
Your child reads the word and then uses it in a sentence.
