READING~ 3rd and 4th Graders are expected to spend some time reading every single night.
Practicing the skills learned in class is essential to helping your
child become a more fluent reader. This should be a relaxing and
enjoyable activity for your child, and it is very important that your
child is reading books that are "just right" for them. They need to keep
track of their reading on their monthly (4th) and weekly (3rd) calendar. To get full credit
they need to read for the assigned amount of time each month and it
needs to be turned in with a parent signature at the end of the month.
SPELLING~ Children need to practice sorting and spelling the words at home. Spelling tests will be given on Friday.
Home-links will be coming home almost every night, I try to avoid
Friday night homework. They need to be completed and returned to school
the next day. If they receive a P.C., P.F. or R, it needs to be
corrected and returned to school for credit.
To Go~ Occasionally your child will be bringing home a math game to
play. It is their job to "teach" it to a member of their family, play
it and then write a paragraph about it in the math journal. Please try
to return the game in 1 to 2 school days so other students have a
chance to take it home too.
