In first grade, homework is assigned to reinforce what’s being taught in the classroom. It actively engages parents in their child's education. Skills like organization and responsibility are taught. Most importantly, students get to demonstrate their knowledge of material without teacher assistance.
Reading is required each night for 15-20 minutes. While I do not require a reading log to be kept, I trust that you will make the time.
Your child will be given daily spelling and math homework. Phonics and grammar worksheets will also be assigned. All homework assignments will be listed on my weekly newsletter, "Little Angel News".
Please insist that your child does his/her best work. The extra effort in September makes for a very easy rest of the year. Your child will quickly learn what is expected!
Thank you for working cooperatively with me to make your "little angel" the best he/she can be!
